Advanced Drama is a half-year honors-level course for students who have successfully completed basic Drama. This hands-on course will expand on principles of improvisation and acting by focusing on directing and writing. Students will be required to engage in all four main aspects of drama- reading, acting, directing and writing. Students will present several scenes during the semester, and the final project will be directing others in an original scene or 10-minute play. This course strives to deepen student understanding of how playwrights, directors and actors bring characters to life.
Grades 10, 11 & 12
