Theatre Forum (TART 51AD) Syllabus (section 72701 & 74060) Fall Semester 2011 Tony Carreiro Instructor Phone: 562-938-4946 Esteban Moreno, Administrative Assistant Email: [email protected] Office: Auditorium Lobby - J134 Email: [email protected] Phone: 562-938-4563 Web: www.lbcc.edu/tdf This class offers you the opportunity to attend a variety of performances illustrating the theatre, film & dance experience. These performances feature presentations of one-act plays, full length plays, student film performances and dance performances. Since the programs each week are live presentations, regular and consistent attendance in this class is extremely important. Also, as in live theatre performances you would attend off-campus, all cellular phones must be turned off and it is expected that you will arrive on time to be seated before the performance begins. Food or drink may not be consumed during the performance. No one will be admitted late to this class! No exceptions! (As in all classes the student policies & regulations on student conduct & academic honesty apply and must be followed and maintained). Record of Attendance: Your attendance will be recorded on the back of each program you receive. Sign your name on the appropriate line for that week of the class. There will be approximately 3 or 4 simple questions on each program along with a space for your name and student I.D. This is the only record we will have of your attendance. As you leave the theatre after the performance has concluded, you will turn in your program with the answers to the questions. For the main stage performances there will be a short paper (one page) due within one week opf seeing the performance. Simply turn in your paper by the due date and you will receive credit for that performance.. This is the proof of your attendance. If you should leave any performance early debit points are earned. Grading Procedures: Grading is based on attendance at classes (performances), required performances and your Mid-Term and Final papers results, as follows: 50% of your grade is based on attendance. 25% on your Mid-Term paper and 25% on your Final paper. It is strongly suggested that after the performances in TART 51AD you discuss the experience in your other Theatre classes. This discussion will assist you in understanding the performance and theatrical elements utilized. Performance Schedule & Information: The performance schedule gives you the specific dates and times of performances and programs. Please review this performance schedule carefully. Although the class regularly meets on Wednesdays at 12:45PM (72701) and Thursdays at 11am, (74060) you will have the option to attend performances at alternate times: Tuesdays at 11am and/or Wednesdays at 12:45pm. You need to attend only one class or performance per week. On weeks that you are scheduled to attend a Main stage production, there will not be a daytime class meeting, as you will be attending your class performance in the evening or during a weekend. For major productions you will need to purchase a student ticket (at the Box Office 45 minutes prior to each performance) in order to attend. Performances and meetings will be in the auditorium or the Studio Theatre H103, unless otherwise noted. The Department’s major evening/weekend productions this semester include Jan’s show by Eve Ensler, Almost Main by Joihn Cariani and the LBCC Fall Dance Ensemble In Concert. Any changes in locations, dates, performances, and cast/crew will be posted and/or announced in classes as soon as possible. Due to scheduling challenges every once in awhile there will be a “one time only” performance. Thses usually happen on Thursday mornings. We will do our best to always give you at least a Wednesday & Thursday option and usualy you will have three chances to see the performances. Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
