This course will introduce students to drama and acting. We will cover terminology, concepts, blocking, and the history of theater. There will be monologue work, in-class performances, and partner dialogue work. We will also do several in-class group performances.  We will also cover improvisation and have many opportunities to explore and have fun with it. 

This class will prepare and perform a Christmas play at the end of the first semester.  We will also be preparing and performing a drama review in April of the second semester. This will include various monologues and short plays that give all students a chance to shine.
