|One-week intensive theatre arts programs offered at UND|
The Department of Theatre Arts and the Crimson Creek Players are pleased to offer one-week intensive courses in theatre arts management and musical theatre. Both programs are open to high school seniors, undergraduate and graduate college students, teachers, and the general public. Participants will work together to plan and produce a showcase performance Saturday, July 14, at Burtness Theatre.
The theatre arts management program features instruction in production management, financial management and marketing, and will be taught by Kathleen McLennan, associate professor of theatre arts, and Ben Klipfel, director of marketing services partnership and experienced director of regional plays. The musical theatre program will provide instruction in acting, dance/movement, and vocal music, and will be taught by a team of three professionals: Gaye Burgess, associate professor of theatre arts; Anne Christopherson, assistant professor of music; and Job Christenson, artistic director of the North Dakota Ballet Company.
The courses are brought to you in part by the College of Arts and Sciences, Department of Theatre Arts, the UND Summer Programs and Events Council, and the Crimson Creek Players, who are a division of the Greater Grand Forks Community Theatre. Participants will meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 25-29 for the theatre arts management program and July 9-12 for the musical theatre program.
