DRA 386 - Edinburgh Fringe Festival (1-3 credits)
This course culminates in mounting and performing a production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland. Students rehearse the production during the spring semester and perform at the Festival in late July/early August. The Spring semester class functions as a self-contained company, with actors, stage managers and technical and design students. Students will then reconvene in Edinburgh three or four days prior to the start of the Festival for rehearsals. This time will also be used for students to explore Edinburgh, allowing for an invaluable experience on many levels. During the Festival, students will have the opportunity to attend a great variety of performances at the Fringe and the Edinburgh International Festival.This is a studio class, and offers various experiential learning outcomes:
There are no prerequisites for Drama majors. Non-majors must have the consent of the instructor.
Class size is limited to 20 students. Any graduate student or advanced undergraduate student is eligible to apply. Students who enroll in this course must participate in both the Syracuse and Edinburgh portion of the program. This is not an introductory course.
