Creative Drama F (OPEN ENROLLMENT)
This course is an introduction to the study and practice of Drama and is intended to build the confidence and composure needed for a live stage performance. No previous acting experience is required. In this class, students will learn proper vocal technique for live stage performance, the terminology of theatre, the process of preparing for a performance, and how to write a play performance critique. Performances will include both individual and duo or group assignments. All performances for this class take place in the classroom, not for the general public.
Creative Drama S (OPEN ENROLLMENT)
This course is a continuation of Creative Drama F, and the skills learned in the previous course are fundamental to success in the spring semester. All Creative Drama (S) students will perform in the Spring Theatre Arts Showcase for the general public. Students will engage in the entire theatre performance process, from auditions to script analysis, rehearsal, performance and reflection. In addition to preparations for the Spring Showcase, students will also study the history of Broadway and American Musical Theatre as well as audition techniques that will prepare them to audition for Intermediate and Advanced Drama, the fall play, the musical as well as community theatre or college admission.
