Theatrical Heritage is a Gen Ed course for non-majors. Similarly known as theatre appreciation, this class  explores theatre in the most general terms in order to familiarize students with the history and practices of theatre. The semester ends with a final project which requires groups to present an 8-10 minute show that incorporates performance, design, and publicity.
