Description

Students will explore comedy and drama as they prepare and memorize monologues, engage in scene work, and build a collaborative ensemble selections with their peers. As students hit the stage they will have an opportunity to express their creativity through their own original work and the work of established playwrights. Students will learn techniques to auditioning focused on building confidence in and outside of  the theatre. My goal is that students develop increased communication skills, interpersonal skills, have a blast learning the craft of thespians, and develop a love for acting.
