Drama is more than an extracurricular activity at The Heritage School; it is an academic class that involves training in the craft: studying acting techniques, terminology, improvisation, and theatre history. Students learn how to interact naturally on stage, project their voices, and understand the idea of actor objective. Advanced Drama students explore the various playwrights of the twentieth century and learn the concepts of script analysis, character development, and production design. Students are encouraged to take on production responsibilities such as stage management, lighting design, and choreography. Drama students are eligible for all Heritage productions, including One Act Competitions as well as the annual spring musical. The spring musical typically involves students from grades 1 through 12 and is a wonderful bonding and mentoring opportunity for our youngest and oldest students.
