The Walton County School District Theatre Arts Programs inspire enjoyment and appreciation for all aspects of theatre. Classwork focuses on the exploration of theatre literature, performance, historical and cultural connections, and technical requirements. Improvisation, creative dramatics, and scene work are used to introduce students to acting and character development. Incorporation of other art forms in theatre also help students gain appreciation in areas such as: music, dance, and visual art.
Students discover components of technical theatre by exploring the use of elements such as costumes, props, and scenery. They also practice writing for the theatre and research various theatre roles and functions.
In theater, cinema, and film production, students explore the elements of film and cinematic techniques used by those who create movies. Students study the techniqures in film that serve the story and articulate the theme. Students also prepare a comparative for theater, film, and literature. Public performances may serve as a resource for specific instructional goals. Students may be required to attend or participate in technical work, rehearsals, and/or film production beyond the school day to support, extend, and assess learning in the classroom.
