Seventh-graders performed today as the culminating activity for the first semester of Theatre classes, Tech Theatre, and Percussion Ensemble. The play "StarTracks" is a parody/mash-up of "Star Trek" and "Star Wars." In Theatre this semester, students worked on their technical skills (physical presence, vocal expression), as well as their creative skills (improvisation, character development, scoring a role, rehearsal discipline). They worked on these skills through group exercises, monologues, and scenes. Seventh-grade students in the Percussion Ensemble had a chance to learn basic to intermediate percussion ensemble technique on a variety of instruments from the percussion family. Tech Theatre supports both in terms of lights and sound. (Photographs are from the play's dress rehearsal earlier in the week).
