Spring class to explore structure and framework
Having a great idea for a play or a script is one thing, but without a structure or framework for writing, it's like building a house without plans. Western Nevada College is offering a three-credit spring term class in "Play Structure & Analysis" Mondays and Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. (THTR 199, call #12597, $224.25).
The course will be taught by Dr. Ursula Carlson, who says, "Structure is the underpinning and framework that holds up a building; it's the pattern a seamstress uses to make a dress; it's the arrangement of trees, plants and flowers that make a garden or park.
"Dramatic structure holds the key to the play's meaning. Its speech is implicit, and if we are aware of how a play is structured, we have a better understanding of the art that went into the writing of it."
Through interpretation and adaptation, a performer can bring greater depth to a role if he or she understands the playwright's mind and vision, Carlson said.
For more information about the class, contact Carlson at firstname.lastname@example.org, 445-4269.
Online registration continues for spring classes, which begin Monday, Jan. 24.
