Legacy Drama students build on previous acting experience by learning advanced acting techniques, including sense recall and “method” acting. Students handle unique acting situations such as comedic timing, improvisation, and stage combat. They also learn technical aspects of theater and how to take on the role of director and stage manager. Students have the opportunity to participate in three productions a year, including One Act Competition.
Training includes development of voice, stage movement, characterization, script writing, and actual performances. Work is based on a variety of theater sources including modern plays and classics as well as selections from Shakespeare. As in other drama classes, a complete willingness to cooperate, participate and create in a team atmosphere is essential for success and enjoyment in this class. It is a great place for students to develop self-confidence in a trust-filled, supportive environment.
