This is not your average theater class. You will not audition for a roll, be given a script, nor assigned lines to memorize. Through hilarious and entertaining theater games, we'll design our own characters. Acting out in this class is not only allowed, but encouraged! While doing fun activities, this class builds your public speaking skills, by improving your stage presence and building confidence for improvising. We'll explore what makes engaging scripts and perform our own collaboratively written play in this unique theater class. You'll get to perform your own costumed character in a full piece, entertaining production, late Fall 2014.
Performance venue and time TBA!
Academic Antics Fall 2014
A collaborative experience in play writing and production...
-Very different than your average theater class or performance group
-A chance for every participant to have a good role and co-write the script
In this course students will learn the basic attributes of what makes entertaining productions then create an original piece. Skill building games will be used to encourage improvisation and practice essential public speaking techniques.
Every participant will be an equal voice in the final collaboration. This is achieved through a sequential process which gives the students an understanding of how to create an entertaining theatrical piece. This process is the Theatrical Arts part of the Art Path model, developed for the CA board of education to train educators and administrators in emergent arts based curriculum development.
the process used to co-write their script, students will gain skills
in observation and evaluation. Students will become proficient in
effective communication while working within a group towards a final
project; an essential asset to future employers. (several recent
articles keep reiterating that local CEOs are looking to hire
employees who can work effectively within a team)
The skills developed in this FUN class:
Working well in groups
Effective communication techniques
Observation and evaluation abilities
Higher self concept
