Hooray! This project is fully funded

This school year is the first year in almost a decade that a theatre elective has been available to students at my middle school in South Central Los Angeles. Over the years, as state testing increases and school budgets decrease, electives have become a forgotten thing of the past. However, I intend to use this year as an opportunity to show students, parents, and educators the value of electives such as theatre. I feel very fortunate that I have the opportunity to make this elective a memorable and important experience for my 45 theatre students. While much of my theatre course will focus on developing students' confidence and public speaking skills through producing and performing our own plays, I also feel it is important that my students have the opportunity to participate in theatre as audience members. Very few of my students have ever attended a live theatrical performance, yet many of the California performing arts standards require that students learn how to critique and analyze live performances. I hope to provide students with opportunities to develop these critical skills. In my long-term plan for the year, I have developed an extensive 10-week unit during which students will explore and research the history of American theatre. The unit will cover such topics as minstrelsy, vaudeville, musical theatre, and theatre for social change. As a culminating project for the unit, I would like students to analyze and critique the popular musical Wicked, focusing on the ways the current musical has borrowed techniques and conventions from a variety of American theatrical forms. My hope is that at the end of this unit, I will be able to take my students to see a live performance of this musical at the Pantages Theatre. While we are working to fundraise for ticket and transportation costs at the school level, it is unlikely that we will be able to raise enough money in the amount of time we have. Any contributions to this culminating project would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance for your support!
