6th Grade Drama

All drama students are required to attend a live theatrical performance during the term they are in drama. To make life easier, I've selected one play each term that I recommend- all are at 7:30 pm in Newton, have free tickets for needy families, and are age-appropriate.

In 6th grade drama we:
-Practice speaking in front of others
-Learn the vocabulary and basic activities of theatre
-Write and perform short plays
-Work with movement
-Read and watch theatre critically

The goal of 6th grade drama is to introduce students to the basic concepts and techniques of the theatre. We look at the parts of putting on a performance, including technical theatre, scriptwriting, directing, and acting, and do a little bit of all of them! Currently Newton only offers drama to 6th graders- if your student enjoys drama class and is interested in learning more, consider Bigelow's After School Drama program or a summer drama camp.
