Students will learn the mechanics and techniques that go into performing a play. Emphasis will be on body language and non-verbal communication, speech and tonal qualities, enunciation, and projection. They will combine this with character study, makeup and blocking to complete a character. Some attention will be given to props, set design and lighting. Drama elective students are required to attend rehearsals outside of class time as well.
TCCA DRAMA PRODUCTIONS & NEWS
- Choral Competitions
- Drama Sponsorships help to continue to bring the Arts to our local community and offer our students a great opportunity to get involved! Thank you for consider a Drama Sponsorship today!
- TCCA Drama recognized for the outstanding theatrical production Annie (performed in Spring 2009). Annie placed 3rd for the Moss Hart Award.
TCCA drama and musical productions, by their nature, will have a limited number of cast openings. Although all students auditioning for parts will receive some educational benefit from the experience, not every student can be actually selected for a part.
Casting selections must be made with primary consideration being the final success of the production. Hopefully, the number of students not selected for parts will be minimal.
If your student is not selected for the part for which they audition, please bear with us. Communicate any desires you may have for their participation in future TCCA productions, and we will try to accommodate these considerations.
It is also necessary to understand that not every cast slot in all TCCA productions will necessarily be filled by a TCCA student. Occasionally some casting decisions may be questioned due to non-TCCA students receiving roles in the production. Please understand that our drama instructor must be mindful of many factors in casting decisions. Sometimes the necessary talent for a specific role may only be found in someone outside the TCCA student body. We may select actors for certain roles with more professional background than TCCA students may possess. These actors may at times be adults with professional acting qualifications or even home schooled students or students from other schools - though these cases will be kept to a minimum.
If you are interested in performing arts and love what we do with our productions, then consider joining the Drama Committee - we need your help! We are looking for people who want to be in charge and for people who want to help with the following areas: set building, concessions, costumes, tickets and programs, advertising and painting. If you are interested, please contac tthe school today!
