Class Description: This class is for students interested in public speaking, theatre and acting. During the fall semester, students will learn theatre basics including terminology, theatre etiquette, and on-stage skills. They will also perform a short show for their families on the last day of the fall semester to display the skills they learned. Throughout the spring semester, students will rehearse a full-length play including props, costumes, and sets to perform in the end-of-year CPC Fine Arts Program.

During both semesters, students will participate in fun, skill-building games in addition to developing and performing mini-skits in class. This class is dedicated to aiding students in becoming more comfortable performing in front of others, honing theatre skills, and emphasizing teamwork by providing opportunities for students to work together to develop and perform a play.  Students will be exposed to all aspects of bringing a show to an audience from being onstage to behind-the-scenes work. Students should be expected to work on assignments at home at least 1-2 hrs each week.
