A visitor from the National Theatre of Young Artists
Grade 5/6 had a surprise visitor one day!
Theodore Steckler, President and Artistic Director of the National Theatre of Young Artists came to our class for a drama workshop. Ms.Shingam invited him to our class in preparation for Unit 4 - How We Express Ourselves. She wasn't expecting him to turn up so soon but was thrilled nonethelss that we got a sneak preview of this exciting unit!
Diction and Emotion
For the theatre, a powerful voice and clear diction is necessary. Theodore took us through some warm up exercises, where we practiced saying words loudly and clearly.
Acting a Part
We learned to perform a short act from his upcoming play.
We had a short but fun session with Theodore and look forward to more sessions with him in our Drama Unit.
