Eighth Grade

Eighth Grade focuses on developing Mind and Feeling. 


  • Body, Voice, Mind and Feeling are developed through Formal Theatre. 

  • Theatre Terminology and Speech Terms are reviewed and evaluated. 

  • Improvisation is introduced incorporating the skills developed through Group Pantomime, group responsibilities selected, scene determined, and roles identified. 

  • History of Theatre is discussed by selected periods. 


The final project is the presentation of a scene from a Period Play.  Students prepare their script, determine necessary props and/or scenery, construct a costume piece,and prepare a poster to promote their scene.  The scene is presented to an audience of peers, parents, teachers, and administrators.
