HOD Approval is required as well as checking availability for dress rehearsals and performances.
This course will provide students with the opportunity to put together a significant production in a variety of roles. In the first half of the year they will choose an area in which capacity they will be a part of the teacher directed major musical production. Their choice is made from the following: performing, lighting operation and design, set design, costume design and creation, make up design and application, stage management and front of house management. Students will then have the opportunity to create and facilitate their own smaller scale performance in the second half of the course, again choosing which of the areas listed above that they would like to explore but with the addition of script writing and directing.
The course is assessed by a mixture of Achievement Standards and Unit Standards. The standards are listed below. Students will not be able to attempt and gain all the credits listed. It is advised that they attempt a maximum total number of 21 credits.
All students enrolled in the course and wishing to undertake the acting component, although guaranteed inclusion in the course, must still audition to determine their role in the show.
