Unleash Your Dramatic Side and have fun!
Each class starts out with a warm-up. Many of these warm-up games are Improv. There is always so much laughing and silliness during the warm-ups.
We start the year out learning about the stage, how to take stage directions, and who’s who in the theater. Next, we do some fun acting out short skits and use masks to act out fables. Of course, there has to be a Christmas play and you can choose any one you want to, depending on the abilities of your kids and where you will be performing the play. We performed our Christmas play at church. We have links to several sites that offer free scripts, including the one where we downloaded ours. We adapted our play a little bit, joining with the Christmas choir who sang between acts.
January and February are spent writing a radio show script and recording it. Of course, first we have to listen to an excellent audio drama so students get an idea of what to create. The rest of the year is spent working on YouTube videos like a testimony, movie or book trailer, or comedy skit. Your kids probably already have uploaded videos on YouTube so it will be a fun way to end the year.
