Theater Arts class is a beginning survey course that covers all aspects of theater. Students will learn about all areas of theater from history, to production, to pantomime, to acting, to puppetry, to drama games and improv. Students work collaboratively in groups to create scripts based on specific genres, time periods, theatrical styles, or reworking of old stories. Specific work will be made to understand the effect of culture on theatrical forms. Final for the first semester is a monologue, and the final for the second semester is a live, free, public performance of student-directed scenes. Students will help on all Bear River drama productions, but are not required to audition for each show.
