How did we make that play?! Find out through an all-encompassing process-based class! Students will explore writing, directing, and acting by working together to create a one-of-a-kind performance. What do you love most about theatre? Is it the magic of seeing the stories in your imagination come to life? Maybe you like putting the picture together as a whole? Perhaps it is becoming a character and discovering their world? Try on each hat- playwright, director and actor- and see which one is the best fit for you. You won’t know until you try! If your child is “not an actor,” we can accommodate him/her in this class and they can focus on the non-performance elements for the production while still gaining social and collaborative skills.
Students who come into this class should already have experience with basic theatre concepts and terminology. This will allow the group to hone performance skills through high-energy theatre games, improvisation, and challenging activities without having to start at the beginning. But we’ll also explore playwriting, design and directing while learning what goes into producing a play.
This semester we’ll be working on — An Intergalactic Epic with Lightsabers! Actors will use the force to create out of this world characters in a battle of good versus evil. Stage combat will prepare us for our battle. Will we win, or suffer a loss to the Dark side? Only our writers can decide the fate of the Force.
STUDENTS NEED TO – Bring a pool noodle to create your own light saber (prop).
This class will have a final performance for parents at 6:00 on the last day of class (Feb 19).
