In this class, students will learn to use their bodies, voices, and develop their writing to express their ideas and perform meaningful works of theatre. Students in drama class work together, sweat together, and create together in the “empathy gym” of theatre.
Oakland Tech’s advanced drama production class is the pre-professional student theatre company, OakTech Rep. Enrollment is by audition only. Auditions occur in the 2nd to 3rd week of each semester. Advanced drama students engage in a rigorous training program in theatrical technique and performance. Classes operate as rehearsals with student leadership and ensemble responsibilities that focus on the creation and production of full-length plays. OakTech Rep often works with professional theatre guest artists; and participate in extensive field study opportunities including Arts research, play-writing, and attending professional theatrical events throughout the school year.
