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.

Character Ideas

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?
