Join us in this exciting performance experience this spring! The classes will present the fast paced, distinctive and exciting One Act Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind at the end of the spring session. This is for the student that is interested in participating in a straight (non-musical) performance. Rehearsals will be held during class time except for the final days prior to performance. The student will experience the full audition and rehearsal process. This is the perfect primer for the student who is planning to audition and compete in high school performances or to audition for college, community or professional productions. Overall, this course serves as a concentration in all aspects of drama and theater with a focus in acting for both the stage and screen. As part of the rehearsal process, the class will still cover our full acting curriculum as well as include the audition experience. The process will incorporate improvisation techniques, character development, text analysis, theater vocabulary, practical skills, and include sketch comedy experience as well as solo and ensemble acting.

Participation in this one act will not interfere with participation in the Spring Musical, Ballet or Performance Team.
