Designed to build a solid foundation for the beginning drama student in acting and theatrical design, this course explores the elements of pantomime, introductory vocal elements, improvisation, scene study, monologue work, playwrighting, and production skills (costume design, makeup design, scenic design, and stage management).  Students wishing to participate with the RUHS fall production are required to take this course and those participating with the spring musical are highly encouraged to participate in Drama 1 – 2. 



Grades 10-12             Prerequisite:  Drama 3 - 4 OR Audition (by appt. with instructor)        

Year long course       Meets UC/CSU “F” and “G” Requirement


The first half of the year focuses on children’s theatre productions and will travel to the local middle schools to perform.  Through these performances, students further explore the skills attained in Drama 1-2 such as the elements of scene study (character development and creating relationships) and technical theatre.  In addition, students learn the significance of theatre through out history ranging from Ancient Greek theatre to Modern/Contemporary theatre.  The second half of the year consists of scene study and further developing the students’ acting abilities.  This culminates in a showcase performance at the end of the year.


ADVANCED DRAMA (Drama 7 – 8)

Grades 10-12             Prerequisite:  Drama 3 – 4 and Audition

This course builds on the foundations developed in Beginning and Intermediate Drama.  In the first semester, students attend the spring DTASC Theatre Festival to represent the department in competition.  They also perform the fall play/showcase for our main stage season.  Rehearsals for this course occur during class and after school.  The second semester, provides the opportunity for intensive scene study sessions to further develop acting skills and the exploration of different styles of theatre.  This culminates in a showcase performance at the end of the year.
