Introduction to Theatre 1

Age: 9 to 11 years

Introduction to the art of music theatre by first separating and teaching the basics of movement, music, and drama. At the end of the year, the students will combine the three art forms to create a musical.

During the first 13 weeks, the class will focus on the art of drama. The students will be guided in the basic skills of acting by learning to use their words and facial expressions to depict a kind of emotion or action. This will be achieved through a variety of drama activities and improvisational techniques. The students will also work on individual monologues, which will be assigned to them by the instructor. Through the use of monologues, the students will use memorization and take their new-found drama skills and apply them to the acting of their monologue.

During the second 13 weeks (January), the class will focus on the art of musical drama. The students will be introduced to the musical theatre world by focusing on characterization, singing, choreography/movement, and creating the necessary props and scenery for the shows. A showcase will be performed at the end of the session.
