The foci of this half credit course include introducing students to the theatre, script analysis, and basic acting. We will explore these areas through hands-on experiences such as working in the high school theatre, reading and discussing selected plays, various acting exercises such as pantomime and improvisation, and viewing the work of others. Students will engage in a multitude of class activities to develop knowledge and appreciation of the theatrical arts. No previous acting experience is necessary, but a positive attitude is required. A public performance may be included.
