Theater Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

Throughout the ages, theater has been used to record history, depict religious stories, spread information and even propaganda. Theater began in 500 B.C. in Greece. Today, Broadway shows alone sell over $1 billion worth in tickets and support 85,000 jobs – everyone from the playwright, to the sound technician, to the set designer. When visiting the theater, discuss what jobs people can have at the theater and the process of producing a stage play. Ask if the show offers Q&A or behind the scene opportunities.

The camp is conducted in a ZOOM format, with both synchronous and asynchronous classes. There will be online classes taught by world famous teachers, and we will curate a collection of videos of the world’s best performing artists from throughout history for the students to watch. Our physicality will vary between seated screen focus and active on-your-feet work. We structure the time so that our students gets valuable social time together, and out-door activities as well. The end goal of this year’s camp is a solo performance.
