Drama Course Descriptions

Drama 1-2Students work in pairs and small groups to learn skills in: 

- team building, collaboration & communication 

- improvisation 

- character development 

- audition technique 

- giving and receiving feedback

- theatre history, including Greek Theater, Italian Commedia dell'Arte, Shakespeare, and Chicano Theater

In addition, students deepen Common Core reading and writing skills by learning to make a statement about something they observe, then back it up with evidence.

- scene study & monologues

- directing, producing and design (One Acts and Karaoke Musicals)

- Youth Playwriting Project with TheatreWorks (show is Nov 10!)
