Middle School Drama

Middle school drama will focus on establishing a basic knowledge of the elements of theatre and acting skills. We will use creative, improvisational games to help the student with feeling comfortable performing and speaking in front of others. Students will perform creative skits in groups as well as working on skits provided for them. They will be expected to participate each class and spend time memorizing lines when needed.
