Before you submit a proposal, be sure to speak with a faculty or staff member in Drama whom you would like to mentor your study to ensure it can be accommodated.


DRAMA 4011 project proposals

Advanced acting proposals

Please note that DRAM 4011 proposals in the area of acting will be evaluated independently from other proposals. Students must audition in open calls for faculty and/or staff-directed productions, with no preferential status.

Therefore, it is advised that students have an alternative plan in place should they not happen to get cast. Students are very strongly encouraged to consider formulating their acting course proposal based on a variety of alternative learning projects and experiences (workshops, scene studies, etc.)

Project description

It is advisable to write your project description offline and copy it into the box provided in the form below.

Please write your project description using the following cues:

  • Outline your particular acting interests, including training methodologies, genres, styles, or your general development as an actor so far.
  • Describe your background preparation (previous acting courses, workshops, roles, etc.), and how these experiences have helped you develop as an actor.
  • Assess your acting in the form of a brief reflection, identifying strengths and areas you see the need to develop. Be as specific as possible.
  • Include other experiences you envision your acting course involving (workshops, scene study, etc).
Non-acting proposals
