Theater Production

Course Description:

Purpose/Process

This course is designed to allow students to use their God given talents to glorify God through the performing arts. The focus will be on staging a play for the public. In the process of developing theatrical skills it is my hope that each actor/actress will grow in their ability to express themselves confidently and joyfully. A sense of teamwork in the process will be encouraged as it is a Christian’s duty to build up and not tear down. Through exercises, scene work, and games each student will attain the skills necessary to perform on stage in front of a live audience. The topics we will cover during class are stage presence, gestures, enunciation, projection, blocking, pantomime, improvisation, character development, memorization, auditioning, vocal techniques, and stage direction.

Curriculum/Materials:

  • Notebook for handouts

  • Responsible for providing your own costume
