This is a full year honors level course
Honors Theatre. The course covers similar subjects as the regular theatre course in greater depth and requires more written and practical work from the student. The student must maintain a grade of "B" and be capable of independent study in order to remain in Honors Theatre. A lower grade may result in the student being placed in the regular theatre course.
Those students who have earned at least a "90" in theatre arts in the previous academic year or show unusual and exceptional promise may take the Honors Theatre Arts course with permission of Dr. Radin.
