Drama Rules

  • It takes an ensemble to make a show; everyone's part is important.
  • Show respect to instructors, fellow cast mates, volunteers, school staff and yourself
  • Be on time 
  • Be prepared  - script, pencil, highlighter, water, snack
  • Listen when others are speaking
  • Raise your hand to speak
  • Follow instructions
  • Be quiet backstage. 
  • Stay out of sight. Remember if you can see the audience they can see you.
  • No toys, cellphones or other distractions allowed
  • Keep your hands to yourself
  • Keep your words friendly
  • Be brave, try new things
  • Speak loudly and clearly
  • Remain positive
  • Encourage others and recognize their efforts
  • Leave spaces clean and ready for classes the following day
  • School rules need to be followed at all times

Students should arrive in comfortable clothes with a script, pencil, highlighter, and water bottle. There is time for a quick snack at the end of school before we begin. Transportation is not provided, please make arrangements for your student ahead of time.

Theatre Tips

  • Remember say Thank You, to your director, your fellow cast and crew and do it often.
  • Be specific! Make choices about your character's background and motivation.
  • Make sure the audience can always see your face and hear your voice.
  • To help memorize your lines, try writing them down or speaking them aloud to yourself in a mirror.
  • Before each performance, wish everyone "break a leg" - theatre talk for "good luck"!
