Drama 10 (3 Credits)/ Drama 20 (3 or 5 Credits)/
Drama 30 (5 Credits)
Drama is not only an art form, but also a form of personal expression that can play a major role in the development of the whole person: emotionally, imaginatively, aesthetically, and socially and it fosters positive group interaction, self-esteem and tolerance to others. While developing theatrical skills, students assume roles and thus, explore life. The atmosphere in drama is non-competitive, cooperative and exciting. At the same time, students are challenged as they strive for self-discipline and personal development.
In addition to the drama program, students may participate in the school Year-Play, The Improv Team, the One Act Play Festival, Cappies Theatre Journalism Program and more.
