Students were engaged with learning through theatre.
Day 1 Character
For a play or movie to be interesting a character must be established. Each character in a movie or play is dressed in colors that represent their personality.
Who is my character? (person or animal)
What is my character’s name?
What is my character like? (kind / evil)
What three main colors might help me show my character’s personality?
Day 2 Set Building
Often when you think of the theatre for a job, you think of acting. There are many other jobs in theatre that never require you to step on a stage. Costume designers, directors, and light/sound technicians all are jobs in the theatre that you can consider as a hobby or a career.
Today’s challenge – Build something for a set. A house, tunnel, an igloo?
