Dramatic Arts ADA1O.
This introductory course offers students a variety of opportunities to explore theatre arts and themselves. Beginning with an introduction to a variety of dramatic forms (Tableau, Chorus, etc.), students learn the essential elements of each form and are able to perform a sample as the culminating activity. Students are then lead through the process of creating unique characters that are realistic and rich. This concludes with a performance of a student-created character monologue allowing them to test their creation on an audience. Next, students explore small (2 – 3 actor) pre-written scripts learning how to breathe life into a character created by someone else, but that is brought to life with the experience and resources of the actor. Finally, students are engaged in a large group production of a small, One-Act play which allows each student an opportunity to use their performance skills. At the same time, students get a taste of all of the additional elements that go into making a full-production performance. A student-favourite (Improv!) rounds out the course with hilarity and quick-thinking mayhem.
