Classes will take place every other Saturday beginning December 7, 2019, from 10:00am - 11:00am.
Students must be 10 years or older (can be younger with prior experience) and have a desire to learn about the basics of acting technique and theatre production.
Because of the nature of the course, students are required to bring a notebook and writing utensil to class. Students will also be required, on occasion, to bring in scripts and/or props to practice their craft.
The purpose of this course is to provide the complete experience in theatre, what it takes to develop a show from first thought to the final strike. Activities will be designed so students can learn how to research, act, design, direct, etc. They will learn to explore the purpose of the play and the idea that desires to be expressed. The ultimate goal is to provide students with the complete guided experience, but also to allow them the time and space for self-discovery throughout the process. Students will be led in the process of creating a work of art that can minister to others and glorify God.
Students will study plot development, story line, character analysis, and character relationships, in order to develop designs for set, costumes, props, lights, and sound. Students will explore all types of staging and then make the choices that would best suit the script they are handling. Through this they will fully understand the tasks that are essential to producing.
