What is a dramaturg? An important, but often overlooked, member of a theatre company, a dramaturg is essentially the person who gathers information. They have essentially three jobs: selecting and preparing a script for the stage, advising the director and actors to keep the show true to the vision, and educating the audience (if needed). The dramaturg is the voice of the author, when the author is not available. They are also well-versed in the historical and social aspects of the production, and can help guide directors, actors, and designers in making sure that all design decisions will fit within the artistic vision of the show. In this course, we will use a variety of one act plays and scenes from Shakespearean comedies to learn about the art and mastery of dramaturgy. At the end of the course, there will be an opportunity to present a staged reading of the scene edited by the class. Taught by Melissa Lamb.
