Class Description: This class is for students with an interest in acting and public speaking, with a focus on theatrical performance. Students will be introduced to basic theatre terminology, gain a knowledge of stage and audience etiquette, and develop performance skills. Through various games and exercises we will work on memorization skills, as well as teamwork and relationship-building, learning to assist cast members with lines, cues, etc. Students will also learn some confidence-building techniques which will help develop their public-speaking skills. We will also touch base on some small prop building and basic costuming. Students will be expected to work on memorization of scripts at home, as well as some performance skill tests and terminology quizzes throughout the semesters.

Students will have an opportunity to perform a small showcase at the end of the fall semester, as well as on a larger scale production for the end of the year.
