Students learn the importance, as both cast and crew, of taking ownership of their work, and the results are amazing! Self-discovery of unknown talents and gifts, strengths and weaknesses, group effort and camaraderie, happens on both sides of the curtain. These things may not be listed in the script, but they can make all the difference in a performance.
Critical techniques learned include stage blocking, vocal projection, script reading, scene critiquing, and improv, to name a few. Performances allow students to challenge themselves in front of live audiences. Best of all, they experience the awesome process in which cast and crew become a family.
Students are introduced to theatrical fundamentals and privided with interactive, technique-based experiences, like speaking in front of an audience and working as part of a cast. These opportunities draw on students’ creativity, self-expression, innovation and imagination. Lights, camera, ACTION!
