High School Theatre
Four brawling lovers, caught in a dispute of increasingly magical proportions; a crew of keen mechanicals, determined to give it their all; and one roguish sprite, bent on causing as much havoc as possible… What could possibly go wrong?
“Act well thy part; there all the honor lies.”
An ensemble of ten, a three word theme, an original play, and four days of professional training with students from around the world.
A Midsummer Night's Dream
On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves entranced and entrapped in an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. “I have had a most rare vision. I had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was…”

ACTING, directing AND PERFORMING
In this course, students will learn how to prepare a play, starting with a script and ultimately presenting a production on stage as both a director and a performer. Students will accomplish this creative endeavor via hands-on lab work in acting, directing, and playwriting. Students will write a short play, learning the creative process of play-writing along the way. The directing unit will cover styles and interpretation of play direction, play analysis, staging, design and production. Students will ultimately direct a short one-act play written by their peers. The class will then segue into the final unit; performance. A strong emphasis is explored via the actor’s main instruments, the body, voice and mind. Relaxation, concentration and techniques in imagination will be explored through devised theatre projects. Performance systems developed by world renown theatre practitioners, including Stanislavski, Meisner, Adler, Boal and others, will be explored using cuttings from classical and modern plays, as well as original works, which students will then perform. The course provides students with ample opportunities in acting, directing, play-writing, script analysis, play production, and stage-management, furthering their abilities to collaborate creatively from the page to the stage.
