Introduction to Theatre Arts
This class gives an overview of the collaborative art of theatre, focusing on acting, directing and producing, and technical theatre, with a little bit of history thrown in for good measure. There is a bit of lecture, but a lot of doing. We will help you think innovatively, and become more comfortable working in groups and talking in front of people.
This class is the first acting class that students take. Emphasis is placed on preparing for a role and analyzing a script.
Here you'll find more intense study, from stage combat to historical acting styles. We are also proud to devise original theatre in conjunction with the special education department. This original work will tour to our feeder schools.
Emphasis is placed on producing theatre, from technical elements to stage management, from producing a play to building a flat. This senior-level class helps produce the two productions that we perform.
