This is the third year that Midwestern State University and Brevard College have worked together in the consortium. In 2015, Smith taught the British Theatre class. It mainly focused on the impact that has been made on Western Theatre by the British. Smith first taught in London in 2011 as a teacher from As a student. Smith participated in a study abroad program through the same consortium. “The experience opened my eyes to what method acting was capable of producing on stage, that styles other than realism and representational- ism could be immediate and moving, and that I wanted to work in this field and learn the craft of acting,” said Smith. In 2015 the program had an average of 60 participants. The class sizes were small and aver aged around 10 students per class. The classes run Monday through Thursday with different field trips taken in the evenings. The four-week class also offers a “mini-break” that allows the students to explore surrounding areas.
