Menlo School Faculty & Staff


In this semester-long course, we dive in for a deeper understanding of all the work it takes to put a piece of theatre on the stage. Students will practice basic playwriting skills, learn the basics of theatrical design & tech areas, and, of course, practice acting using monologues and scenes from famous plays, movies, and TV shows. The class is designed to support the students’ pursuit of co-creating characters, sets, costumes, etc. with a script. Together we’ll build a performance for a Creative Arts assembly at the end of the semester to feature our successes for an audience.
