When preparing for a role every actor asks 6 questions:  WHO AM I?  WHERE AM I?  WHEN AM I?  WHAT DO I WANT?  WHAT IS MY OBSTACLE?  HOW DO I GET WHAT I WANT? We will learn how to answer these questions during rehearsals of an edited full length play.

 

At this level, we focus more intently on context, story, messaging, themes, emotional intention,  character study, real-world connections and implications of the material.  Students continue to think and work creatively, both independently and collaboratively, in a supportive and forward-thinking environment.  Ovation! chooses intelligent, sometimes challenging, thought-provoking scenes and plays for our intermediate and senior level drama programs. Any challenging subject matter is dealt with in a supportive and responsible educational manner.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  *Performances: 3 to 6:  this class performs a scene from their play at the Winter Showcase; their full-class production is mounted in April; and then a brand new piece is worked for performance in the spring Get STAGEstruck! show at Markham Theatre.  Additional rehearsal and production hours will be required when mounting the spring shows.  Ovation! often secures 1 to 3 additional school-touring performances of the senior play in elementary or high schools in the area.  Information on  this will be provided in the fall after the play has been chosen and contacts/dates arranged.
