Pretty easy, overall.
This course fulfills the fine arts core requirement at Tulane. It's really fun and teaches some important life skills in addition to theater. I loved it because it was so interactive and allowed me to get on my feet and do things. I particularly took it because I love theater, but no prior experience is required. This professor was very good at explaining everything and helping out students of all levels.
Some highlights of this course were watching everyone in the class become more confident on stage as the semester progressed and being relatively close to my classmates and professor due to the nature of the course. I learned how to act more effectively by focusing on intentions rather than emotions. I also learned, indirectly, more about interacting with people and public speaking.

Advice for students:
Take this course seriously even though it's not a traditional lecture course. Listen to what the professor says and just try your best. She will help you if you try. Also, start learning your lines well in advance of the performances (in class for midterm and final; simple stuff like monologues so don't stress). You have to be willing to step a little bit outside of your comfort zone and work with other people!
