Welcome to Theatre Arts and Journalism at Northwest Guilford Middle School!
Theatre Arts class is an introduction to theatre as an art form Icebreakers/theatre introduction, Improvisation/Pantomime, Theatre history, and Acting techniques. Students participate in creative dramatics, and beginning scene work is used to introduce students to acting and character development. Theatre arts largely focuses on script analysis, performance, historical and cultural connections, and acting in groups/directing.
Journalism/Yearbook focuses on Reading, Writing, Discussions, Hands-on Activities, and Oral Presentations. Students participate in yearbook discussion, layout, design and theme. Throughout the year, students explore concepts of communication, broadcasting, and the foundation of mass media in the 21st century.
Modern Music & Theatre The goal of modern music is to develop musicianship skills used specifically in the musical theatre genre. This studio course enhances students' work done in music, vocal performance, dance, and acting to allow practical application of a musical theatre performance. This is an advanced section of Theatre Arts and Modern Music class co-taught by Mr. Yngsdal and Mr. Luck.

Welcome! My name is Mr. Luck and I am excited for my 4th year of teaching! While majoring in Theatre and on minoring in Musical Theatre at UNCG, I was employed with radio stations Rock 92.3 WKRR/ 107.5 WKZL and earlier interned at The Dispatch of Lexington, NC. Outside of the Media/Broadcasting business, I have freelanced in Regional Theatre since 2015 at Triad Stage, The Lost Colony, Paper Lantern Theatre Company, and GTCC Performing Arts Center as an Actor and Theatre practitioner. I have obtained certifications with the Society of American Fight Directors and Actors Equity.
Originally from High Point, NC, I am a former 3 sport athlete in football, baseball, and basketball/wrestling, while I sports in Marching Band, Indoor Percussion Ensembles, Chorus, and Theatre Arts programs. I’m a firm believer in Arts programs and Athletics shape our learners.
I graduated from Ledford Senior High School in 2015 and attended Western Carolina University and UNCG from 2015-2018. Since graduating, I have been employed through GCS beginning in August of 2019 and a graduate of the Guilford County Schools Alternative Certification Track in 2021, obtaining my K-12 License in Theatre Arts.
Outside of being an educator, I enjoy Orangetheory fitness, spending time with our dog Remi, and DIY home improvement projects! I enjoy traveling with my fiancé Tatum, and we reside here in the Piedmont Triad of NC. I am looking forward to teaching you this school year.
Mr. Lucks Favorites
