Creativity and a positive attitude
As classroom exercises will be physical, students should wear clothing that allows for freedom of movement, for example, no short skirts or platform shoes. Inappropriate attire is not an acceptable excuse for non-participation.
Much of the student's grade is based on participation. Roll will be taken at every class, and it is mandatory to be on time and ready to work. Theatre is a collaborative art. As a member of an ensemble, it is the student's responsibility to be present, prepared, and focused. Disrespectful/disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. Removal from class will be considered an unexcused absence.
After-school rehearsals may occasionally be required. Appropriate notice will be given to parents and students, with consideration given to outside commitments. However, once an outside rehearsal schedule is formally agreed upon, failure to honor the set schedule may affect casting and/or a student’s final grade.
School rules apply. All electronics must be turned off and out of sight. No food or drinks allowed, excepting plain bottled water.
Grades are based on participation in class exercises; rehearsal in and out of class; script analysis; readings and quizzes on theatre history and terminology; stagecraft and performance. Breakdown: 40% participation; 10% quizzes; 30% performance; 20% journal. Please note, barring excused absences, Mrs. Flint does not accept late work for credit.
*Dates and venues subject to change throughout the 2012-13 school year.

*Onstage participation in the above events will be determined by audition. Students will be required to perform in class, however extra-curricular performance opportunities will be highly competitive, and they are not guaranteed. Students who do not receive speaking roles in the Spring play will still be expected to support the efforts of the class in backstage production.
