This course is designed for students with little or no theatre experience, and promotes enjoyment and appreciation for all aspects of theatre. Classwork focuses on the exploration of theatre literature, performance, historical and cultural connections, and technical requirements. Improvisation, creative dramatics, and beginning scene work are used to introduce students to acting and character development. Incorporation of other art forms in theatre also helps students gain appreciation for other art forms, such as music, dance, and visual art.
This year we will be focusing on (in this general order):
- Learning about various performances spaces
- Technical Theatre
- Musical Theatre
- The Audition process
- Perfecting the Rehearsal Process
- Storytelling & Playwrighting
- Who's who of producing a play
- Theatre Critique
The other teacher for this course is Ms. Feliciano. Students MAY transfer between classes as schedules adjust. Check Ms Feliciano's website for more details.
Students who intend to progress with theatre should consider advancing into a MCCA class, auditioning for various shows, joining the Thespian Troupe, or working in the 7th period class. Ask Ms Singley for details, or see below for informatino about 7th period.
