Drama - Course Description

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

The Eleventh Grade studies the dramatic form of the monologue- beginning with Shakespearean monologues, moving into excerpts from modern plays and ending with their own compositions. The students examine how language can reveal character through the use of literary and theatrical devices. They also explore the acting techniques of the Russian director, Constantin Stanislavski and his student, Michael Chekhov, as a way of further revealing character onstage. The class culminates in a performance of one of their monologues for an invited audience. The students are evaluated on their participation in class, their mastery of the exercises, the timeliness and quality of their assigned work and their final performance.
