Academic Overview

The Theatre & Arts in London program allows students to explore the arts and theater scene in London through a three-week education abroad experience.  All students will enroll in TH 479 Theatre of London—Travel Abroad for three credit hours.  This course will explore the theoretical and critical context of artistic production and evaluation. Students will be guided and prepared in methods of artistic critique and key issues that inform production values. Students will interpret and present their course experiences by means of personal portfolios which will comprise in-depth critiques of three contrasting theatre productions.  In addition, students will take part in an exciting mix of performances in three distinctly different areas of London theatre:  the West End; Off West-End and the Fringe/Pub theatre circuit, as well as have numerous opportunities to explore areas of personal interest, such as the visual arts, dance, and music.

Program Leader
The course will be taught by Price Johnston, Assistant Director of the School of Music, Theatre and Dance. Price Johnston’s career in design has spanned theatre, dance, and opera in both the U.S. and abroad. With work in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Moscow, Athens (Greece), London, Atlanta, St. Petersburg (Russia), and Denver, he has designed over 180 productions. 

Location
