Theatre and Society Blog

Theatre and Society classes participate in a flipped pedagogy of internet interactive learning by commenting on videos, exploring instructional media and taking online assessments.

A private WordPress group site of student created and commented blog entries.

Fall 2013 semester’s class made amazing group posts for their final projects which led to dynamic, well-crafted presentations that surprised these undergraduate, non-theatre majors and inspired many to get further involved in theatre either at USD or in their own towns!

Blooming this Spring ’14 with Prof Ryan…

Courses I’ll be teaching:
Opera Workshop (Musc 154 & 354)
Theatre and Society (Thea 111-01)

My two sections of Theatre and Society will be attending the Cygnet Theatre’s production of Spring Awakening through a grant of the Extended Faculty Student Interaction Fund from the USD Provost’s office.  

From last semester’s Theatre Arts and Performance Studies (TAPS) production of The Spitfire Grill, actors Lauren Fisher, Mitchell Krassin and Monica Perfetto will be competing in Los Angeles at the 2014 Region VIII Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival for the Irene Ryan Acting Scholarship.

The lunchbox series features a 3-part series on clowning and the physical actor by Terry Glaser, and a specialized discussion of selecting, applying for and moving forward with graduate school by MFA program director, Rick Seer and TAPS professor Dr. Monica Stufft.

At the end of our semester, look forward to our 3rd annual End-of-the-year Bonfire at Fiesta Island!

Come by my new office (Camino 173) and say hello!
