Course Description:
 This course is intended to meet state and national theatre standards. At the sixth-grade level, students explore more formalized theatrical experiences. They participate in creative staging and design challenges; scripted and improvised character work; the development process of a theatre piece; selecting material, analyzing, rehearsing, experimenting, and producing; and performing in an informal setting for an audience. Students identify how personal and cultural perspectives influence how theatre is interpreted, further explore the role of theatre in society and how time periods can influence design choices. Students evaluate their own work and the work of others using supporting evidence. They engage in more advanced improvisational, acting, and playwriting activities. Research projects on ancient theatre history and careers in theatre may be included.
