PolyToday: StarTracks and Percussion Ensemble

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.
