12th Grade Drama - Course Description

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

The 12th graders are active participants in choosing their play – their final gift to the school community. Recent choices have been Macbeth, Camino Real, and a musical adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. The seniors all have speaking roles and also sign up for production crew; they collaborate on designing the set and costumes. They rehearse extensively, blocking the play, memorizing their lines, working on character development and, if applicable, music and choreography. The students have the assistance of a scene coach, set, lighting and costume designers, a musical director, a choreographer, musicians, and a hair and make-up stylist in a production that culminates in three or four public performances.
