9th/10th Grade Drama Elective

Elective Drama classes are also offered for 9th and 10th graders.

The 9th grade Drama focuses on basic acting skills (using your voice and your body to effectively communicate a character’s thoughts and emotions), developing creativity and self-confidence, and general knowledge of how a stage production is put together.  Units of study include improvisation, duet acting, oral interpretation and storytelling, costuming, and stage combat.  Students must attend a live-theatre production each semester and write a review of the performance.

The 10th grade Drama focuses more intensively on acting skills and character development.  Units of study include improvisation, duet acting, monologues, and stage lighting.  Students must attend a live-theatre production each semester and write a review of the performance.
