On Monday, all drama classes will meet in the black box to view a recorded copy of SWIMMING WITH JELLYFISH, the play that Mrs. Grant wrote and starred in alongside Mr. Adams. Here is a breakdown of what we'll be doing in class for the remainder of the week.
On Tuesday, we will finally see our last few theater scene final presentations. That means that on Wednesday, we'll begin our film/TV unit. Wednesday will be informational, as you'll learn about the different camera styles we'll be covering and also discuss some of the countless jobs that can be found on a professional sound stage. You'll then get with your scene partners (partners will be assigned if you haven't already chosen someone) and then Thursday and Friday will be devoted to selecting film/TV scenes.
Now that we're done with our theater scenes, this entire week will be devoted to our clowning work, with the exception of 2nd block on Wednesday, when Ms. Cook will lead a voice and speech class (as always, please bring/wear comfortable dress out clothes on that day). Also, remember to start thinking about costume pieces for your clown. 2nd block: your "impossible tasks" will be due on Tuesday. 4th block: you'll find out what "impossible task" means ON Tuesday.
On Tuesday, we'll continue our college research discussion. We will move quickly, so please be prepared. On Wednesday, we'll have another monologue performance day, and you'll be asked to present a different monologue than the one you performed last week. Thursday we'll return to college research, and I'd like to hear further monologues choices from the few of you who still do not have four approved pieces. On Friday, we'll return to our three station rotation with Drama 3, as Mr. Adams works classical monologues, Mr. D'Haviland works on musical theater pieces and I coach contemporary monologues.
Hope you've all had a nice weekend. Looking forward to a good week.
