HS Specialty: Adaptation

HS Specialty: Adaptation

Students discover the art of creating new work based on existing material. Students will work collaboratively and experimentally to create theatrical scenes based on works of prose, fiction, historical events, and/or personal experience. Learn how to develop a script and adapt the tone, structure, characters, conventions and plot for the stage right off the page. Create the world of the play using various tools and transformative objects. Perfect for students who also love directing, improvisation or writing.

Skills Focus:
• Using existing literature to create new theatrical scripts
• Working collaboratively and developmentally
• “Pitching” ideas or concepts to ensembles
• Using movement, sounds, speech, ordinary objects and physicality to community meaning, characters and places
• Refining scripts and dialogue
• Communicating ideas through stage directions and written scripts
