Thomas Nelson Community College has expanded its offerings for the fall semester to include CST 131: Acting I and CST 145: Stagecraft. The three-credit courses will enhance the curriculum offered by the TNCC Performing Arts Department which includes opportunities for performance and coursework in Music and Theater. The department is rapidly expanding and will be increasing course offerings continually. All courses and ensembles are open to all TNCC students.
Acting I guides students through the exploration and development of performance skills using theater games, role playing and improvisation. Other activities will focus on basic script units and scene performance.
Stagecraft allows students to study theater construction, lighting, sound and costuming. As a part of the course, students will have the opportunity to participate as part of TNCC’s Dr. Mary T. Christian Auditorium (MTCA) backstage and booth crew. MTCA is on TNCC’s Hampton campus and serves as a venue for performing arts, lectures, films, symposia and other special events. The 470-seat facility is home to several local performing arts groups, including Iron Street Productions, Poquoson Island Players, York River Symphony Orchestra, and Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble.
