Intro To Drama

During our time in Intro to Drama, I look forward to getting to know all of my students as individuals and eventually, Theatre Artists. My hope is that they will grow to understand, appreciate, and even love the art of theatre. I truly believe there is something for everyone, and I hope I can convey that to my students.

Academic Expectations

By the end of this course, students will have a broad understanding and appreciation of many aspects of Theatre Arts including but not limited to:

  • Physical parts of a Theatre and all of the people and jobs that make a working theatre run effectively.
  • Improvisational acting.
  • Theatre through history.
  • Performing as an individual (Monologues).
  • Performing with a partner (Duet scenes).
  • Theatre Design elements (Costumes/Makeup, Set Design, Special Effects).
  • Musical Theatre.

*All students must attend or participate in AT LEAST ONE production for each semester they are enrolled in Theatre classes. Following the show, students must write a critical review of the performance they have attended and provide proof of attendance (ticket stub, program, or a *non-flash* photo of curtain call). Ideally, this production will be performed at Heritage, but if needed, you may attend and review a production at another school or community/professional theatre.
