Due to the Covid-19 crisis, you are allowed to watch any recorded live theatre production (no movies) as you wish.
Each student must attend one live theatre production (within the same semester of taking the course). Under no circumstances will a recorded production or a production seen prior to the beginning of the course be acceptable. By continuing the course, the student agrees to this statement and all additional information presented in this document. Theatre UCF productions and other theatre productions may not be recorded (under any circumstances) and photos may not be taken. The student also understands that tickets must be purchased as soon as possible. Waiting to purchase tickets and facing the possibility of sold-out shows will not extend the due date of the production review assignment. These statements apply to ALL students and in continuing this course, students agree that no exceptions will be made under any circumstances.

Prior to purchasing a production ticket, check our syllabus or schedule for the production review due date. Not all UCF Theatre Productions will meet the due date. If you purchase a ticket not allowing you to meet the due date, the due date will not be extended.

LIVE THEATRE PRODUCTION

The production must be within the same semester that you are taking the course and meet the deadline on our schedule.

It cannot be a theme park production, comedy club, Blue man group or grade school show.
The student will be required to provide proof of ticket/purchase. The instructor reserves the right to reject productions that are not appropriate, and the student will receive zero points. When submitting the assignment, you must include the ticket or receipt showing proof of purchase. It must contain your name, A friend or family member purchased my ticket will not serve as a valid excuse, for a ticket not containing your name. Reviews not meeting the ticket requirement receive a severe point reduction or zero points (at the discretion of the instructor).
The photo of the ticket must be placed within the document. Tickets will not be accepted through email or in person. It will only be accepted within the document (Online submission through the webcourse system).
