In the Spotlight

 



Junior High Dramatic Arts

 

Jr. High Drama Class

The class is open to 7th and 8th grade students. Since it is a performance based class, it may be taken multiple times by students who have room in their schedules. The class focuses on all aspects of producing plays, and each semester a play is produced by this class.

Students develop basic skills in voice and physical acting as they learn and work on the following:
Acting - Scene work, monologues, and ensemble
Basic of Technical Theater – Set, Costume, Properties, Lighting, and Sound
Publicity
Auditioning and Casting

Our department produces a special production cast entirely from our 6th grade students in the fall. Rehearsals for this play are held after school hours.

We produce
one musical play each year in the spring with auditions open to all Jr. High students. This play is also extra-curricular and requires time after school hours.
