TAPS 15SC: Courtroom Theater

In the new millennium, the popularity of TV courtroom drama has been staggering: according to a weekly Nielsen ratings conducted a few years ago, 30 million people watched CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in one night, 70 million watched at least one of the CSI shows, and 40 million watched two other forensic dramas ( Without a Traceand Cold Case). These widely popular shows offer a somewhat distorted image of American criminal courtroom. In this class we will go "behind the scenes" to engage in a hands-on investigation of performances in the criminal trials. nWe will begin by visiting Bay Area courthouses to investigate the courtroom as a "set" for powerful legal dramas that are happening there on a daily basis. In these field trips we will also observe the courtroom proceedings and talk to judges and other legal professionals. After this introduction to the real-life courtroom, we will investigate landmark theatrical court dramas. Using mock trial techniques, we will approach playtexts as legal "cases." We will try to identify weaknesses and strengths of these cases, and then use them as mock trial scenarios. Ultimately, this class engages the questions of what does it take to build a solid courtroom case and how does it differ from a powerful piece of theater. While getting acquainted with both courtroom and theater techniques, we will keep a critical eye on (mis)representations of criminal courtroom in the popular media. No previous experience in acting or mock trials is necessary. The class is under submission for Creative Expression requirement. Sophomore College Course: Application required, due noon, April 7, 2015. Apply at http://soco.stanford.edu.

TAPS 25: Acting Short Narrative: From Shakespeare to YouTube

This course will help beginning students understand basic dramatic structure for acting short scenes. Using classic models (Euripides, Shakespeare, Noel Coward, Stephen Sondheim), we will explore how compelling dramatic scenes are constructed. Students will work with the instructor and with professional actors from Stanford Repertory Theater to come to grips with what makes these scenes successful and how best to bring them to life. As a final project, students will work together to develop and write their own short dramatic scenes, suitable for posting on YouTube.

TAPS 11SC: Learning Theater: From Audience to Critic at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival

Who doesn¿t love going to a play: sitting in the darkened theater, an anonymous member of the audience waiting to be entertained, charmed, and challenged? But how many of us know enough about the details of the plays, their interpretation, their production, and acting itself, to allow us to appreciate fully the theatrical experience? In this seminar, we will spend 13 days in Ashland, Oregon, at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF), where we will attend these plays: Shakespeare¿s Much Ado About Nothing, Pericles, and Antony and Cleopatra; the U.S. premiere of Stan Lai¿s Secret Love in Peach Blossom Land; Frank Loesser¿s Guys and Dolls; the world premiere of Lynn Nottage¿s , Sweat; Quiara Alegría Hudes¿ The Happiest Song Plays Last; Charles Fechter¿s adaptation of Alexandre Dumas¿ The Count of Monte Cristo; Eugene O¿Neill¿s Long Days Journey into Night; and the world premiere of Jeff Whitty¿s Head Over Heels. (To read more about these productions, go to www.osfashland.org). We will also spend time backstage, meeting with actors, designers, and artistic and administrative directors of OSF. Students will read the plays before the seminar begins. In Ashland, they will produce staged readings and design a final paper based on one of the productions. These reviews will be delivered to the group and turned in on Thursday, September 17. Note: This seminar will convene in Ashland on Monday, August 31, and will adjourn to Stanford on Sunday, September 13. Students must arrive in Ashland by 4:00 p.m. on August 31. Room and board in Ashland and transportation to Stanford will be provided and paid for by the program. Sophomore College Course: Application required, due noon, April 7, 2015.
