Tech’s Beginning Drama class is a prerequisite for students wishing to take Advanced Drama or study Drama in the Performing Arts Academy. Students may also enroll in Beginning Drama as an elective out of interest in the subject.
Students learn the fundamentals of theater arts including improvisation, movement, character, group dynamics and scene reading. Group interaction is heavily stressed.
The class presents performances for family, friends and the community, and goes on numerous field trips to professional theater performances in Oakland and the Bay Area.
