INTRODUCTION TO THEATRE (COLLEGE PREP) 9-12

Introduction to Theatre will introduce students to various aspects of theatre production: acting, directing, stagecraft, makeup, lighting, and production. Students will learn to critique and create theatrical productions. Students will develop theatre literacy and appreciation by exploring how theatre arts and dramatic story telling fit into their own lives and the community.



SPEECH ARTS (COLLEGE PREP) 10-12

Speech Arts is not just a class about making speeches. Speech Arts helps to create a foundation for students to work on communication, creativity, confidence, story telling, team building and other life skills. Theatre games, improvisational activities, movement, presentations and hands-on activities are fundamental to this class that helps to prepare students for life beyond high school. Students can take this multiple times for credit.



ACTING (HONORS) 11-12

Acting is a workshop course for students who are highly motivated to perform. The course will include acting technique, improvisation, characterization, theatre movement, monologue, dialogue, and scene work. Students must be capable of memorizing and performing monologues, dialogues and scenes. Students will participate in the staging of a full drama. They will learn as much about themselves as they will about the characters they portray. Students can take this course multiple times for credit.
