THEATER CLUB (GRADES 3 – 5) by Ms. KAITLYN BLACK
We will explore the basics of dramatic expression through the art of theater games. Students will engage in creative expression, perform recitation of poetry, conduct mini-plays, and become confident in their communication skills.
DRAMA (GRADES 6 – 10) by Ms. KELLEY OUTLER
This club is designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of the Theatre Arts and a firsthand opportunity to perform onstage in a production. They will gain knowledge about technical theater including set design, lighting, costuming, and sound in addition to blocking, memorization, stage presence, and voice projection. Through this work, students gain confidence in public speaking, learn to work with a group to complete a shared vision, and make memories that will last a lifetime. We plan to perform two plays, one in the winter and one in the spring. Due to the time necessary to put on a production, students will be asked to attend rehearsals after school and on weekends, and spend additional hours, on their own time, reading and memorizing their lines and cues. We ask that students only sign up for this club if they are able to commit to these additional hours.
