    Drama is designed to prepare students with skills that will help them in the workforce, expand interpersonal and communication skills, heighten understanding of self-concepts, expand on individual and group problem solving and compare and contrast theatre with life situations. We will also explore a variety of educational and career paths: live theatre, film, radio, television, advertising, public relations, creative writing, public speaking, auditioning techniques, and job interviewing skills. This course is designed to focus on the broad perspective of the world of theatre. Topics include characterization, improvisation, commercials, as well as original scene writing. Additional topics include characterization, improvisation, mime interpretation, vocal and physical warm-ups, musical theatre, as well as storybook drama and children’s theatre.
