Theatre Class Update!

Class Vision

A class vision is the driving force behind every project and assignment in a class. For theatre, it is:

"In theatre, we will learn to become empathetic and problem-solving citizens in order to make the world around us a better place."

Ask your scholar how they have been working on our vision in class this week!

Class Updates

This Week in Theatre Class

Our pantomime unit is complete! Your scholar was able to create, rehearse, and perform a pantomimed routine completely from scratch! We were called in to try to non-verbally communicate with aliens who had landed in Irving!

Ask your scholar:

-to perform their pantomime presentation for you!

-why non-verbal communication is important.

Coming Up!

We're going to keep diving deeper into acting with our next unit on Sensory and Emotional Recall! This will be another pantomimed performance, but this time the focus will be on their ability to show emotion in their presentation.

The final performances will be October 3rd and 4th!

Weekly Grade Emails

Be on the lookout after this week for my weekly grade emails. You will only receive one if your scholar is not passing my class. My goal is to keep you as informed as possible so your scholar does not get too far behind!


Below is a link to an online version of the syllabus your scholars received at the beginning of the year for your reference.
