“All the world’s a stage, and the people in it, merely players.”
What You’ll Learn in Drama Club
Format of Meetings
- We cover a lot in a short amount of time. Think of this as a drama survey course – I’ll teach you the basics about all the facts of theatre so that by the end of the marking period, you’ll have a clear idea of what areas are of particular interest to you. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to continue drama club, or get involved in community theatre!
- Specifically, we will cover acting, playwriting, directing, theatre history, the business side of theatre, technical aspects including props, sound, lights, set design, make-up, costumes, and theatre appreciation and evaluation.
- Students will learn to do acting warm-ups, improvisations, monologues, and two-, three, and four-person scenes. Students will read and analyze scenes and plays.
- Primarily hands-on, on-your-feet, expect to move a lot. Much of the content will be covered through active, hands-on projects, theater games, and physical exercises. This is an art and our bodies are the instrument.
- Meet every Friday after school the 1stsemester. 4:15-5:15 pm
- If you are going to miss a meeting please email me at least 48 hours before.
- Spring semester meetings will be turned into rehearsals for the play.
- Think of fall semester as training and preparation for the final production.
My Goals for Drama Club
- Auditions for the play will be held in the beginning of spring semester.
- 3 to 4 rehearsals a week.
- If you are interested in auditioning or taking part in the production you must be committed to Drama Club. Being committed is that you attend meetings, and participate.
- To teach students about all aspects of theatre.
- Introduce different approaches and methods to creating performance art.
- To help them gain appreciation and an understanding for the arts
- To become familiar with theater history, significant figures, plays, and theater terminology.
- Also, to discover new things about themselves and others through the “creative process”.
- Finally, utilizing and applying what they’ve learned to their final performance and life.
