Triple Feature- Theater Class

At the end of the school year I had 17 students in a theater class. I let the kids break into three separate play groups. The kids wrote their own plays, worte their own dialogue, directed their own play, built set designs, figured out props and costumes, and of course acted in their own plays. All I did was make sure they were going in the right direction. In two weeks these kids did so much work and the work paid off.

The three plays are all available above for your viewing pleasure. You will see some mistakes and some awkward pauses and missed cues (some of these were my mistakes). Great performances and ad libbing and some really hilarious moments.

It took me a while to upload due to computer, and video upload issues. Thanks to Anava today, who yelled at me for not having these uploaded yet, because it inspired me to spent the rest of the day figuring out how to upload them and get them online.

I like that you let them come up with the ideas behind the play and everything involved. Nice job.
