Students enrolled in Theatre Production will read and analyze plays and apply criteria to make informed judgments. They will create scripts and theatre pieces, conceive scenic designs, and develop acting skills. These activities should incorporate elements of theatre history, culture, analysis, response, creative process, and integrated studies. Additionally, students explore career opportunities in the theatre, critique theatrical productions, and recognize the responsibilities and the importance of individual theatre patrons in their community. The nature of this course allows for two successive semesters of instruction at this level, provided that defined standards are utilized. Although the course may meet during a regularly scheduled class period, the scope of activities may require additional time. Consequently, the course may meet for a lengthened class period or outside of the school-day hours.
