    Bob The Cell Phone Bin

     This is "BOE (Bastille of Electronics)," the cell phone holder. All cell phones go into the assigned numbered pocket at the top of class. Students who do not particpate MUST have their device OFF and in their bookbag. Non-compliance will result in confiscation and office referral. "BOE" is located behind my desk to do our best to mitigate theft and tampering.




    Theatre 1-4

    Welcome to Theatre! Whether you have been a performer, technician, theatre enthusiast, or are completely new to the world of theatre, this course will be an exploration into the many aspects of theatre performance and production.

    Course Description: The beginning student will discover theatrical careers, theatre history, acting, production, and will learn how to use theatrical skills in many other life and career activities. The intermediate and advanced student will continue to develop and hone their craft through teaching others, working on a variety of shows for various purposes (competition, school performance, children’s theatre), and acting as arts administrators (fundraising, advertising, club business)

    Students are advised that theatre can be playful, exciting, and exhilarating, but it is also hard work. You are expected to come to class everyday with a positive attitude, a coopertive spirit, and a willingness to work. 

    Most assignments will be graded based on effort and enthusiasm, in addition to demonstrating understanding of content. We strive for active participation, not perfection.

    I look forward to us growing as artist together.
