Theatre Arts I is an introductory course. We will work to create skills for performance and learn how theatre can be a place for creative expression. But this class will not just focus on how to be an actor. We will examine theatre as a whole and all its various parts. Throughout this class you will make artistic choices, perform, and work as a team. So by the end of the year you will have general understanding of how theatre works and a better understanding of yourself.
In Theatre Arts II-IV students will continue to hone their skills for performance as well as determine an area of focus. Students can choose to focus on acting or technical theatre.
