Honors Drama is an enriching and dynamic high school theatre class that explores the fascinating world of theatre, exposing students to the magic and artistry of the performing arts. This course is designed for students who have an interest in theatre, whether they aspire to become actors, directors, playwrights, designers, or simply wish to deepen their understanding and appreciation for the performing arts.
Honors Drama works hand in hand with the Drama Club and students are able to count their Honors Drama coursework towards the accumulation of Thespian Points. Students who reach 100 Hours of rigorous Drama work are eligible to join. The Thespian Society is a High School Honor Society, as a Troupe and opens opportunities for students to serve on an international board. As a troupe we travel to Columbus, GA and participate in ThesCon, a three-day event where students do workshops, watch performances, can audition for colleges, participate in tech and design challenges, and speak with college representatives.
In class, we will work shows from conception to performance – analyzing the script, discovering character motivation, and developing compelling designs. Yearly, we will take our first show to the Georgia Independent School Association Competition and complete in One-Act against other Independent and Private schools in the state.
