This week you will start writing a short one act play and we'll watch a theatre production together.
These are the instructions for Drama 1, please see band for your classes specific guide. It's not that much difference.
One Act Writing: You might think that this is too hard for you to accomplish. I say BS. What I want you to do is to find a children's story, a fable, a cartoon, a story from creepy pasta, any short story that you can turn into a play and do that. Adapt an already short story into a one act play.
There is a guide posted here that covers the entire project.
You'll be able to get the directions in full, find the link to the presentation on how to write a play and follow a time line that will have write your play this month. If you do a little bit every day or about an hour a week, you'll finish it. I'll be making a separate post for how to use celtx.com. It's playwriting software that you'll use to share with friends and myself.
There is no grading with this assignment. I just want to give you something that you can totally do on your own and not have to worry about memorizing anything!
Watch a play at the National Theatre of London
You can watch any time during the week but we’ll watch together at 1:00PM on Thursday and have a live group chat about it on band in the LHS Review band.
Also, you can answer a guided question in a band post after watching anytime.
In order to join the discussion and answer the post followup question you must be a member of the LHS Review band. You can find it on the home page at www.lhsdramahall.com. Join now if you’re not in that band.

Technical Theatre Assignments: 3/30-4/3
This week you will practice some scale drawing and we'll watch a theatre production together.
This week create and post a 1/4” scale drawing of your bedroom. If you’re feeling extra, do your entire home. Just one floor, if you have more than one. Post a picture of it here. You can hand draw or use your computer. Don't forget all the windows, doors, furniture.
Post the drawing in a comment under the submit post on band.
Each week for the remainder of the year two assignments will be posted on your class band then copied to this blog.
Your parents will eventually be aware that this exists. I know that your academic classes are pressing you hard and when assignments are optional, you may not have the same motivation as you did before.
I'm here to simply inspire you, keep you engaged in some activities that are both long in their creative scope or fun and simple that can be knocked out in in a few minutes. I also know that you are involved with a lot of video conferences right now. In the near future, I'll host some office hours that you can pop in on and ask questions. I have to get that settled and see what software we like. For now, you can send a chat to me in band ANYTIME and I'll check those every morning.
There will be an activity for actors, technicians and then one for both.
Here we go!
