THEA 386 – Theatre in the Community: The Newark Collaboration

Professor: Chris Ceraso, Judy Tate
Credits: 4

About the Course:

This course requires travel time to and from Newark. Drew students work with high school students from the Newark public schools in a collaborative theater-making enterprise, serving as mentors and sharing in the process of play development and performance. In addition to weekly play rehearsals and theatre workshops with the Newark students, Drew students meet periodically on their own to assess and develop strategies for facilitating the work of the full group. Class is held at both the Marion A. Bolden Center in Newark, NJ and Drew University. The final performance takes place at both locations.

About Community-Based Learning:

Community Based Learning (CBL) classes, also sometimes called Service Learning Classes, foster the ability to connect academic learning with action in the world. At Drew, CBL classes strengthen community partners that serves the common good. They fulfill the Off-Campus Experience requirement and qualify as one of the Launch program’s immersive experiences.
