Welcome to Quarter 4 in Theatre Arts! During the opening weeks of sixth grade, students explore their own creativity and the actor's tools of props and costumes. For seventh grade students, the first weeks include an exploration of the thinking behind an actor's lines that makes their acting believable and engaging. Eighth grade students begin their work on two improvisational skills - creativity and concentration. All grades enjoy skill-building games and small group work to ease stage fright before formal performances are graded. Places everyone…
March brings the end of third quarter classes for Theatre Arts. Sixth grade students have explored props and costumes as actor's tools, and now they focus on movement and gesture as expressive tools. Seventh grade students explore the complex acting tools of rhythm changes and memorization. After improvisational practice with these skills, they present scenes that celebrate what they've learned. Eighth grade students have a showcase performance during their class period; parents and teachers are invited! Period 1's show is March 26 from 8:15 - 9:00 and Period 2's show is March 25 from 9:05 - 9:50. Arrive early to allow time for signing in and finding Room 224. It's standing room only for all of these talented performers!
Community Night on March 4 will also highlight some improvisation actors with a live demonstration of creativity on the spot! Join us from 5:30 - 7:30 to celebrate arts at Campus!
