Students in this class will work together to write an original sketch show. Students will be held to weekly deadlines in order to generate material to be featured in the show. Students will also get the experience of generating material collaboratively with others.

Students will be expected to devote time to writing and rewriting material outside of class. Students will also get the experience of rehearsing, blocking, and producing sketches for the stage.

The culmination of Sketch 301 will be the performance of a sketch show comprised of student-generated material.

PLEASE NOTE: Students will be writing for a predetermined cast, not for themselves. The focus of the class is on writing, rewriting and producing sketches for the stage.
