Explore further into the world of theatre, develop characters, write your own scenes and start directing.
Prerequisite: Drama 10
Building on the skills learned in Drama 10, Drama 20 students immerse themselves into the world of theatre through scene study, playwriting, and other units designed to improve acting technique, writing skills, and directing skills. Students take part in workshops with professional theatre artists, attend plays together and are encouraged to get involved in the Calgary theatre community.
This class culminates in a children’s theatre performance for local elementary schools which sees the students writing, directing, and creating their own piece of theatre which they take on to the road to perform. Drama 20 students are also encouraged to perform in Drama 30 directing projects at the end of the year, giving them more opportunities to hone their craft as performers.
