This is an incredibly unique class that enables students to be involved in many aspects of modern theatre. While working together and making decisions as a “Company”, we will get to know each other’s strengths, improve upon our weaknesses, and put on some fantastic productions in the meantime.
Daily Supplies Needed
- Composition book for journaling (you will leave this in the theatre and write in it daily). Please bring composition book by Tuesday, August 23rd.
- Textbook will be provided when necessary and stays in the theatre.
This class will be structured to model a professional Repertory “Theatre Company”. After we discuss individual and group goals, the semester/school year will be spent rehearsing and performing various theatrical pieces. For the duration of this class, students will participate in many theatrical endeavors including but not limited to:
- Producing and performing several one act and full-length plays in repertory for semi-monthly showcase nights to act as fundraisers for the Theatre Department. Dates TBD by the class.
- A student written/produced play to be performed for the elementary schools.
- Preparing any IEs (including a One Act, if determined necessary by the class) for THESCON in December.
- Writing and preparing student written/directed One Acts to be performed in the Spring.
- Reaching various personal and group goals determined at the beginning of the semester.
*All students must attend or participate in AT LEAST ONE production (outside of those done for/in class) 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.
