The Drama II/III class is an Advanced Acting class that offers students a more accelerated pace than that of the Drama I class. The class has been created to offer the serious student of drama an opportunity to study and develop his or her acting and/or theatre production skills. Students will concentrate on further developing their vocal, movement, and acting skills, while also analyzing plays, developing characters, and working on scenes. The elements of theatre, production design, and theatre history will continue to be studied in greater detail. The group will prepare and produce at least two performances for the public. Because the performance components of the course are different each semester, students may take Drama II during their junior year, and then return to take Drama III during their senior year. Both groups of students work together during the same class period.
PLEASE NOTE: Students with previous drama experience may bypass the Drama 1 course and start with the Drama II course, but prior approval from the instructor is required.
Students may use only one semester of a Drama Class for a 1/2 credit English graduation requirement; however, not all upper level institutions recognize the drama classes as accredited English credits. Taking additional Drama classes is equivalent to taking additional elective courses.
