What an incredible year of Performing Arts we have had! And it’s full speed ahead for the remainder of the year!
We’ve put our dancing shoes back in their box (for the most part) and we’ve exchanged them for foundation, loud voice projection and wigs!
The senior production of Wind In The Willows is in just 14 sleeps – Tuesday 30th October (6:30pm), Wednesday 31st October (1pm) and Thursday 1st November (1pm & 5pm).
Tickets are on sale via trybooking. Stay tuned for Konnective updates.
Rehearsal for the production is the primary focus of grades 3-6 at the beginning of this term as we fine tune their chorus performances. We are learning to add sound to a scene using our voices, as well as movement with our bodies. And of course the students are learning the importance of practice, teamwork and giving and receiving feedback.
When the dust settles on the Phoenix Theatre, Grades 3-6 will finish the year with a brief drama unit. The primary focus will be performing a short scripted play in a small group. Last year we did some great work on improvisation so this will be a lovely balance!
The Junior School are also exploring drama in Term 4.
The Preps are touching on the fundamental elements of drama through various games and activities and we usually throw in some dancing at the beginning or end to use up some of their boundless energy.
The Grade 1s have been making finger puppets in Visual Arts with Ms Loder and they will be exploring their unique characters in order to develop a basic script which they will then perform in a small group at the end of the term.
The Grade 2s have been learning to develop character traits by asking lots of questions. Each house colour has created 4 main characters that are evolving each week. As we progress, the students will begin to take on these characters and develop their own scripts to perform to the class.
It’s a great time to be dramatic!
Happy Term 4 everyone.
