We will begin our unit on Theatre Make-up next week. The easiest way to do special effects make-up is with liquid latex. I’ve sent home latex allergy forms. Please return these by Friday, November 9th.

A Knight on Broadway Update

Students have chosen to donate all proceeds to a cancer charity in honor of Charleson Dancy. Please go to the following link: Honoring Charleson Dancy to select which charity we will be donating to. I’m so proud of your commitment to honoring your friend, and I think this is a really beautiful way to do this!

A Knight on Broadway

It’s that time of the year again! The Theatre 2 showcase will be held on Friday, November 2nd at 7:00pm. A letter was sent home today regarding this show. Please note that students who are unable to be in the show must bring back the form sent home today by Friday, October 19th. You can find a copy of the form here: Knight on Broadway Info

Just like last year, each class will perform a Broadway tune as an ensemble. Auditions for soloists, duos, trios, small groups, and/or dancers will be held in class next Wednesday, October 24th. Individual students must audition to be in the show.

This performance is a major grade, so students must be present. Alternate assignments will be given to students who are unable to make the performance. This is not a punishment, just an alternative. Students who do not show up to the performance without permission prior to 10/19 will receive a 0 as a major grade, except in emergency cases.

Listed below are lyrics to songs as well as any props needed:
1st Period: The Schuyler Sisters
2nd Period: It’s the Hard-knock Life
3rd Period: Love is an Open Door
5th Period: Singin in the Rain and Umbrella
*Umbrellas Needed
6th Period: Prince Ali

First Major Grade- Monologues!

Our first major assignment is to find one monologue to prepare for the class. Students will use class time to find these monologues, utilizing sites such as aceyouraudition.com or reading from various scripts for a preferred monologue. Monologues should not be shorter than 30 seconds in length. Students do not have to have monologues memorized, but should not be reading from the page. As long as they are familiar with the script, they will be fine. Monologues can be from television, film, stage, or written specifically for auditioning. Each class has decided upon a day to perform. The schedule is as follows:
1st Period: Friday, August 31st
2nd Period: Wednesday, August 29th
3rd Period: Friday, August 31st
5th period: Friday, August 31st
6th Period: Friday, August 31st
7th Period: Friday, August 31st

These monologues can be nerve-wracking. I have not posted a rubric here because as long as the student attempts to perform the monologue rather than read it, he/ she will receive high marks. Break a leg, team!

Welcome Back!

Welcome to the  Theatre 2 page. I will be updating this page with links to our projects with rubrics and deadlines as they come. Don’t forget to get the Remind by texting @klmsdrama2 to 81010. Thank you!
