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 plays or choosing to work backstage as crew. The course includes auditions, rehearsals, design workshops, set construction, costumes, publicity and the many other aspects involved in creating a theatre 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 full lengthproduction which will be performed at the Nelson and District Chamber of Commerce in late February or in one of the two tour shows which will be performed at Trafalgar, Mt. Sentinel and L.V. Rogers. On March 9th at the Capitol Theatre Ott students will also perform in an evening of original work. And finally, in late April, Ott students will travel to Vernon to attend the annual Good Will Shakespeare Festival. Throughout the season, Ott students are expected to attend the scheduled theatre workshops intended to hone specific theatre skills.
Each year LVR produces a major school play. This year's full length production is 12 Angry Jurors, written by Sherman L Segel adapted by the television script by Reginald Rose. The play is as powerful and relevant today as when the highly charged jury-room drama was first seen in the 1950s.
The 12 jurors, who have numbers in the play and not names, must decide if a young Hispanic man is guilty or innocent of murdering his father. A guilty verdict will draw the death penalty. They start with a vote, with eleven of the jurors casting for guilty and just Juror 8 going for “not guilty.” As Juror 8 explains why the testimony does leave reasonable doubt, the tide of opinion in the jury room begins to turn, but so do emotions as Juror 3 is steadfast that the defendant is guilty. As the arguments intensify we see each of the juror’s prejudices and preconceptions about the trial, immigration, the criminal justice system, the accused and each other.
The fact that the play still speaks to us is sad, but history repeats itself until we get it right. Students in the course will be involved in all aspects of the production from design to execution.
This year's tour shows include Tick Tock, by Lindsay Price, a one act play which explores the difficulty teenagers sometimes have communicating their feelings, and Through Your Teeth, an original piece about the dangers of lying.
In late April students will travel to the much-loved annual Goodwill Shakespeare Festival in Vernon where they will perform a short original piece called #dostthouloveme? Students must pay $150.00 to attend the 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 to be announced)
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.
