Drama is an introduction to theater arts and acting before a camera. 6th grade Exploratory Drama will focus on theatrical plays which will cover theatre games that build confidence as well as acting skills, theatre vocabulary, vocalization, character development, stage presence, movement, & audience behavior. There will be about one minute of memorization at the end of the quarter, before the performance of a five minute play, The Turkey & the Fat Mayor.

The 7th grade drama class will focus for 7th will focus on the production of a screen play. Students will explore how the production of a screen play differs from theatrical plays. Students will walk through the steps of creating a story, then a script, next a story board used to create a video of their screen play & finally students produce a quality, edited video. This will be done in groups of 5. Each group will have a director, a camera person, & three actors. Each person will have more than one job. How well students perform their monologue assignment determines what their role will be in Acting Before A Camera. Past students were amazed how the life of an actor performing in screen plays differs from their presumed “easy" job. They also thoroughly enjoyed participating in the Acting Before A Camera class.
