Students may choose one or two semester courses from The Arts learning area.
Within the year 9 course students will study a range of genres and forms of theatre throughout the semester.
Students will have the opportunity to:
extend their skills in working with others in various group tasks and performances.
begin a formal study of acting, with an emphasis on realism and believability.
create, develop and sustain character in improvisations and scripted performances.
study play scripts with particular reference to theme, character and context.
experience the "page to stage" process by working in ensemble to present key scenes and full one-act productions to other classes.
attend a live theatre performance and further develop review writing skills.
Maintain an Arts Process Journal demonstrating evaluation and reflection, undertake written assignments, oral presentations and theatre reviews.
Students will be required to contribute towards the cost of tickets and/or travel for Live Theatre or Screen Productions as negotiated with the teacher (approximately $20.00).
