Thespian: noun 1. A person who participates in the creative process related to theatre productions.
This year we will be working on story telling and writing, vocal techniques, and characterization (making distinct characters). The students will work on their interpersonal skills as well as their intrapersonal skills, as they relate to theatre arts. We will also be doing smaller technical theatre units throughout the year in support of our grade-level showcases. Students will also have the opportunity to attend performances at the school of various performance groups.
There will be three (3) showcases this year. Set dates will be released shortly.
4th & 5th - December 13th @ 1:00 pm
2nd & 3rd - mid-March
Kinder & 1st - early May
