For rising 7th-9th graders
How does the narrative power of story come to life in theater? How does learning the production process of theater change your perception and experience of the world? How can you replicate a multi-million dollar theater in your backyard, school, or anywhere else that you choose? Behind, below, above, and on stage, this course features the magic and magician’s tools that are used to create theater.
The journey begins behind the stage, learning about scale, proportions, and models through light, sound, and space. Then you descend below the stage, only to soar above, interacting with pulleys, flys, traps, and turntables. You’ll learn about safety, balance, and movement. Course closure is achieved on stage by bringing to life theatrical form and function, concepts and designs. Mastery is demonstrated through understanding, adapting, and transforming the main course concepts.
