OTT Theatre Company/Theatre Production 10/11/12 - 2018/2019
This exciting course is intended for theatre students who want to apply the practical skills learned in class to a full scale theatre production. Students will either receive a Company 10/11/12 or a Production 10/11/12 credit depending on whether they are cast in the play or choosing to work backstage as crew. The course includes auditions, rehearsals, design workshops, set construction, costumes, publicity and the many other aspects of creating a main stage production. This course is not meant to replace Drama 10 or Drama 11/12. It is strongly recommended that students take both courses in tandem. Students should note that this course happens outside the timetable. The reality of a theatre production is that it requires absolute commitment to long hours in concentrated blocks of time. Students are required to attend rehearsals and performances. Admission by audition/interview only (mid-October)
Students are expected to work on this year's major production which will be performed at the Capitol Theatre in March. As well students must attend the scheduled theatre workshops intended to hone specific theatre skills.
Each year LVR produces a major school play. This year's production will be announced in early October. Students in the course will be involved in all aspects of the production from design to execution.
In April students will travel to the much-loved annual Goodwill Shakespeare Festival in Vernon where they will perform a second production (TBA). Auditions for the Shakespeare play will be held early next semester.
Students must pay $150.00 to attend the annual Shakespearean festival which includes professional workshops and inspired performances from schools across the province.
The 110 hours needed to meet course requirements will include the following:
production meetings and skill building workshops (specific dates and times to come)
pre-production, production and post production hours for each play/project
Students must keep a Theatre Production Journal; specific hours spent in pre-production meetings, in rehearsals and in performance must be logged. The journal which includes creative brainstorming and student reflection is a critical assessment tool used in this course. Students will also be assessed on crew and performance skills. Criteria will be set according to the specific project and student role.While this course is linear, students will only receive marks in this course during the second semester reporting sessions.
