Beginning Theatre Arts
(9th-12th, one year elective - Fine Arts)
Improvisation PROP game -- Jack-n-Box


Improvisation Prop Game -- Bowling Pins

Course Description: Beginning Theater Arts is a year-long course that gives a general overview of theater arts and lays the foundation of acting skills for future courses. Students develop knowledge and skills in acting and directing through various group and solo performances of pantomime (see pics below), improvisation (see pics above), memorized and blocked scene work, student directing, and basic light and sound operation.  Students observe the Jaguar Troupe productions and film versions of plays and respond to them using vocabulary and language of the theater and use criteria for judging and evaluating. Students are introduced to the various technical aspects of a theatrical production through mini workshops and some hands-on projects.  Students read aloud, translate and view William Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew and analyze modern themes.
