Grades: 4-6

Explore Performance

Create and perform an original play which integrates specific theatre skill sets. In the morning, work collaboratively with your peers to develop your play’s story, setting, characters, dialogue, and staging. In the afternoon, delve deep into theatre technique workshops to gain new skills you’ll incorporate into your play. Throughout your class experience, engage in theatre games and activities to help you explore concepts like stylistic choices, ensemble work, story structure, character development, and theatre vocabulary. Perform your original play for family and friends on the final day of class!

THEATRE LEARNING LOOKS LIKE:
  • Integrating multiple performance styles & theatre concepts
  • Rich collaboration – discussing & contributing ideas to enhance performance
  • Considering how different physical & vocal choices create unique characters & scenes
SKILL-BASED LEARNING LOOKS LIKE:
  • Learning skill-specific vocabulary & concepts at an age-appropriate level
  • Understanding concepts though warm-ups, games, exercises, and explorations
  • Scaffolding & building-upon concepts to achieve mastery
