COMING SOON! - DRAMA II/III SENIOR RETROSPECTIVE! June 4th during AcLab
John Hancock College Preparatory High School is proud to offer a full four-year Drama program for our students.
Drama I focuses on introducing students to the fundamentals of acting and the aesthetics of theater as an artform: voice and movement, script reading and analysis, theater history, technical design, and critical analysis. Students also participate in the spring production as actors, designers, and stage crew.
In Drama II, students develop their skills as playwrights and actors, work with complex scripts, and present two shows to the public.
Drama III students learn stage management and directing skills and mentor the Drama II students. These students learn the process of auditioning for professional roles and hone their performance skills as they work with classic theater texts including Shakespeare and the Greeks.
Drama IV (new in the 2018-2019 school year) is an advanced mentorship program where students become responsible for the broader aspects of theatrical productions including developing budgets and designing advertising materials as well as continuing to act in, direct, design for, and stage manage productions.
