Intermediate Drama A/B (Audition/Teacher Approval Required)
This course will explore various acting techniques for both stage and screen. Students will learn to analyze a script and develop a character through research, observation, imagination and improvisation. Students will engage in many exercises that will develop the skills needed to create a believable character, and they will apply this to several performance projects including monologues and duo or group scenes. Students will also learn to write a meaningful play performance critique, as well as audition techniques applicable to on campus productions, community theatre and college admissions.
Intermediate Drama students are also eligible to participate in theatre festivals where students perform for adjudicators and compete with students from all over the Southern California region.
This course also focuses on Children's Theatre through our annual production for local elementary schools. Intermediate Drama students develop a Children's Theatre production including writing the script, staging/choreography, costumes, props, etc. and travel the production to local schools for a special in-school assembly.
Intermediate Drama students all perform in the Spring Theatre Arts Showcase.
