From Hamlet to Hamilton, THDA 435 Intro To Theatre covers highlights from theatre history, theatre now, & the theatre of tomorrow, and fulfills the FPA DIscovery Requirement. You will see live UNH Theatre & Dance productions and filmed theatre, take part in creative assignments, and find out the answer to: What is theatre?  Where did it come from? Who makes it and how? What makes theatre special? How do I get free and cheap tickets?  What will be the theatre of the future?    

Students say:  I loved this project.  *We all really bonded with each other and I think I made a new group of friends!*  *I'm glad I took this class with friends.*  I’ve never taken a theatre class and never did something like this but I had a lot of fun.
