Part 2- working towards the class play started in 2.1.

What? Break a Leg! This theatre term may have originated during Elizabethan times and that instead of applause the audience would stomp their chairs, and if they liked it enough the leg of the chair would break. Or “to break a leg” meant to “take a bow” because your knee would have to bend (or break) if the audience was clapping whilst you took a bow.

In 2.1 and 2.2 both the 4DRA class and 5DRA will be working towards separate class plays. We will be working with scripts to develop character, drama techniques, elements and conventions of Drama.

Please choose only one, either Level 4 or 5 Drama. The Level 4 class will focus on building skills and confidence or for those new to Drama, and the level 5 class will be more advanced and preparing students for NCEA assessment at the end of the year or early next year. Chat to Alister or Sarah if you are unsure which group you should be joining.

If you did not choose Break a Leg in 2.1 come talk to Sarah about whether there are roles you can play in the show as you may be able join in 2.2.
