In the three-week theatre ensemble program for grades 6-9, students are trained in acting, movement, and vocal technique and apply these skills to the fundamentals of drama, storytelling, collaboration, and personal expression.
Instructors guide students through a process called "devised theatre" that involves a variety of acting, movement, voice, and improvisation exercises, resulting in a fully realized, student-invented stage performance.
This year students will be devising a theatrical performance based on the stories of "The Brothers Grimm."
Theatre Ensemble students participate in the following activities and classes:
- Four hours of daily rehearsals.
- Acting Technique class.
- One elective class (view list)
Intermediate Theatre Ensemble emphasizes collaboration and every student admitted to the program will perform in a featured role in the culminating production.
Prepare two monologues and submit these as two (2) video audition files containing one (1) monologue each from published plays of your choice. One monologue should be comic and the other serious (1-2 minutes in length.)
Students with moderate to advanced theatre experience may also be interested in the six-week repertory theatre production program.
