Course Description

Teacher in Charge: A. Hughes

This course is for those who enjoy theatre performance through Musical Theatre. Be a double or triple threat; act, dance and sing. Enjoy the challenges and opportunity to perform songs, dance, act and speak. Though you do not need to sing! Perhaps you have an interest in costume, make up or set design. 

There is an emphasis on the practical study of performance to gain experience and an understanding of theatre and dance. 

Teaching and learning are aimed at furthering skills and knowledge in basic dance technique, acting, composition, choreography, technical design and performance skills with music performance and Pacific studies as an optional addition.
