Thanks for the suggestion, @christa! Could you share more about what courses or material you'd like to see in a Theatre Specialization?
@christa I would also be interested in some specifics here. I have been involved in many theatrical productions, from directing, conducting the Pit, playing in the pit, acting onstage. How about you? What is your background in theater? Looking forward to hearing from you and having productive discussions.

Dear @Laura,

thank you so much for your reply!

I am thinking about some specialized areas, focusing on Technical Theatre, concerning mostly Stage and House Managers like: Stage Management, Front House Management, Box Office Management/Customer Service, Theatre Social Media and Theatrical Printed Material, Theatre Bar Management and Theatre Safety. Hope to see such a Specialization in Coursera I love as soon as possible!

All the best,

Maria
Christa,

I've been working on a stage play script, so maybe these might be of interest:
