Theater Arts (Grades 7-8)
Focuses on experiential learning where students participate in speaking, moving, creating, doing, and evaluating activities. These activities develop learning skills, promote self-expression, and increase the student’s ability to interact with and be tolerant of others. Inherent in this process is the development of personal discipline, self-confidence and critical thinking skills.
Theater Arts (Elective, Grades 9-12)
Provides the opportunity to participate in a variety of areas including acting, directing, playwriting, costume, makeup, and other activities related to theatrical production and organization. The curriculum is based on the belief that truthful acting is created by great storytelling, physical behavior and sensory work. Training and techniques are facilitated by the use of great theatrical literature from Shakespeare to modern playwrights.
