Theatre Exploration 5–6

The Durham Academy Middle School theatre program aims to instill a love of theatre by providing every student with the opportunity to engage in the many facets of the playmaking and theatre production process. The exploration trimester begins with a focus on establishing the skills needed to collaborate and work together as an ensemble. Students are then exposed to the fundamentals of acting and improvisation while creating original scenes based on their ideas and interests. The class culminates with an end-of-rotation performance.
