The Beginning Acting class can look forward to movement work, makeup, improvisation, mask work, scene study, and tabletop puppetry.
The Technique class is back with Lessac vocal work, directing haikus and “The Jabberwocky” from Alice Through the Looking Glass, and acting in and directing ten-minute plays. The Advanced Acting class will be off and running with Greek chorus work, Shakespeare, rapier and dagger, Commedia dell’Arte, Moliere, Congreve, Sartre, Genet, Ionesco, contemporary theatre, and tabletop puppetry. Mrs. Martineau would like to stage some of this exciting work at Bluff Point in Groton and in the arboretum.
The Production Class will be “hanging out” in the lighting grid and learning to use the sound and dimmer boards.
The Thespians will prepare for the fall tour performance. We have the Winterfest performance, working tech for Compchorea, planning NYC theatre trips and Random Acts of Theatre for March-Theatre in the Schools month, and the spring Thespian Tour. Seventh and Eighth Graders are welcome to join in the fun! Lots to do, Thespians. Get ready and get involved!
All of the acting classes as well as the Thespians will perform at extended acting assembly in the fall. A teaser assembly for the fall play will also be presented.
Audition materials for both Second Class (fall play) and Into the Woods (spring musical) are available.
