Theatre I

 

Grades 9-12, 1 credit

Course number: DT-410-1

 

This introductory course serves as both a fine arts credit (required for graduation) and a prerequisite for Advanced Theatre (Theatre II, III, and IV), Musical Theatre, and Technical Theatre. Students in this course will build basic performance skills through improvisation, pantomime, voice work, monologues, scene work, directing and design. Students will also learn how to analyze dramatic texts, construct simple scripts, and critique theatre through the writing of play reviews. The best Theatre I students are those who like to try new things, enjoy working with others, and desire to improve their skills.

 

Students will be expected to attend live theatrical productions during after-school hours. No experience or participation in department productions is required and all are welcome! Join us if you want to build confidence and creativity while making good friends.

Courses

Theatre Arts courses fulfill the fine arts graduation requirement for Howard County Public Schools in an exciting, interactive manner. Students are encouraged to try new things, collaborate with their peers, and apply creative problem-solving skills to the many performance, writing, and design projects we work on throughout the year. Upper level courses for GT credit are offered for serious theatre students, many of whom end up pursuing careers in performance, dramatic writing, or theatrical design.
