" Travel/Study Course Interest Meeting October 3"
SALISBURY, MD---The Bobbi Biron Theatre Program at Salisbury State University announces a new collaboration with the Shakespeare's Globe Theatre in London. Travel/study courses will be offered to SSU students, as well as the Salisbury community, in January for the winter term 2001 at the Globe Education Centre in London, England.
Courses offered are Advanced Theatre History and Shakespeare in Performance. "We will also offer independent study in order to make credit available to students who may have already taken either of the other two offered courses and to enable both performance and non-performance students to participate," said Dr. Paul Pfeiffer, director of theatre at SSU.
The courses offered will encompass 2½ weeks in London with primary instruction taking place at the Globe facilities with pre-arranged trips to galleries, archives and theatres. There will be a meeting to discuss the trip on Tuesday, October 3, at 6:30 p.m. in the black box theatre in Fulton Hall.
All instruction time will take place at the Globe. Students will have the opportunity to work on the Globe stage in at least three sessions. "Monologues and scenes will be performed on the stage in our final days as a culmination of the experience," Pfeiffer said. "Students not in the performance class will also be given the opportunity to explore the stage and to 'try on' some Shakespeare in its intended venue."
Estimated cost for the travel/study to London is $1,700, which includes all travel, lodging and breakfast, most theatre tickets and entrance fees for exhibits and educational costs of the Globe Theatre. Participants will be responsible for other meals and optional side trip expenses. Anyone interested in earning upper-level college credit for the experience will need to register for the January term and pay SSU's tuition and fees accordingly for either or both of the classes offered. Tuition and fees are not included in the $1,700. For more information call Pfeiffer at 410-543-6235.
