Hone your individual voice as a writer as you prepare a sketch show with your classmates
Sketch 301 is the culmination of our Sketch program at UCB. Students will work together to write and produce an original sketch show that will be performed in front of a live audience. Students will be held to weekly deadlines in order to generate material to be featured in the show while also collaborating with others. They will also gain insights into the rehearsal process, and observe teh process of working with actors to bring sketches to life.
Students will be expected to devote time to writing and rewriting material outside of class. Students will also get the experience of rehearsing, blocking, and producing sketches for the stage.
With classes both in-person and online, students can take UCB's sketch writing program from anywhere in the world!
