Course Description:

Students learn the basics of theatre arts by exploring a character through such activities as pantomime, improvisation and effective speaking using articulation, projection and breathing.  Students also explore elements of technical theatre by exploring the use of such elements as costumes, props and scenery.  Students practice writing for the theatre and explore various theatre roles and functions.  Public performances may serve as a culmination of specific instructional goals.  Students may be required to attend and/or participate in rehearsals and performances outside of the school day to support, extend and assess learning in the classroom.
