Drama and Tech Theater Course Descriptions


Drama 1-2Students work in pairs and small groups to learn skills in team building, communication, improv, comedy, character development and audition technique. Drama 1-2 also covers important theatre history, including Greek Theatre, Italian Commedia dell'Arte, Shakespeare, and Chicano Theatre

Drama 3-4: In this intensive course, actors develop a deeper understanding of theater from different cultural and historical perspectives through playwriting, scene study, monologues, directing, emotional development, and performance technique. Curriculum changes every year, may be repeated for credit. (Students must be in grades 10-12 and either passed Drama 1-2 or have permission of the instructor)

Tech TheatreThis hands-on class builds skills in teamwork and collaboration and serves as the backbone of the Drama Department. Students learn about and create the sets, props, lighting, sound, and costumes for all of our shows. Students also develop an understanding of the dynamic relationship between director, designers and audience.
