Theatre I
Why take Theatre I?
Theatre I is a course designed to encourage individuals of ALL talent levels to “step out of their comfort zones” and experience the drama of life through interactive dramatic experiences.

Advice from Price:
Theatre I is the type of course that will surprise you if you approach it with an open mind.  If I’m doing my job right and if you are willing to participate, you will find that the class offers you much more than acting skills and theatre disciplines.  It will help you to become more confident and creative, and also allow you to develop some great friendships while having fun!  This is NOT your typical class (i.e. lecture, notes, homework, individualized work, etc.), so to get the most out of it, don’t approach it as such.
