The Drama 2 course is a continuation of the skills learned in Drama 1. Students will continue to enhance their understanding of performance basics in continued monologue and scene work. Theatre history will be examined in greater detail and provide continued performance opportunities. Again, students will be requested to attend the school play or musical and demonstrate their understanding of performance basics in the critique of an actor onstage. Also included is a study of the function of the playwright, the actor, the director, and theatre technicians. Students will collaborate on a final original project to be presented at “Night at the Museum”. This course has been approved to meet the UC “f” requirement.
