This December, Saint Mary’s Theatre will be presenting a special adaptation of one of the most beloved short stories ever written: Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol. In this festive tale of redemption and compassion, over the course of one ghostly Christmas night, cold-hearted businessman Ebenezer Scrooge learns to pity himself and to love his neighbor – but is that enough?
Directed by Mr. Kevin Costello, A Christmas Carol will be filmed this fall and broadcast three times on a Pay-Per-View platform, December 4-6, 2020.
This course utilizes pantomime, improvisation, and script study to enhance creative expression, confidence, and teamwork. It is also useful preparation for public speaking, politics, law, business, and any profession where self expression and communication are important. Students are exposed to theatre terms and elements of production including writing, staging, costuming, etc. Every student will regularly perform in class. Good attendance and participation are essential.
This course is a continuation of Drama Theory & Performance. Increased emphasis and advancement are placed on scene studies, the application of principles learned in #8310 and further improving the performance level of the student. Each student will have special reports to submit on more specific and concentrated areas of theatre.
This course is specifically designed for instruction, research, scene studies, etc. outside of the classroom. In order to meet state requirements timewise for proper transcript credit, the student will be required to do field work on the high school's fall or spring plays. A contract must be signed guaranteeing attendance at all scheduled rehearsals and performances. Failure to do so will be reflected in the grade for the period. Course can be repeated.
