FIREFlies 2: The Stage and The Script

Pre-req: This class is best for students who have had prior theater classes and due to the amount of reading, writing and memorization involved, is best suited for students in at least the 5th grade.
FIREFlies 2 takes the elements covered in the introductory class and shows the students how to make them come together. We will cover some basic script analysis as we work on choosing and memorizing short monologues. The students will be pulling apart some favorite children's stories to learn more about stock characters, structure and what makes a good story. The Students will prepare a series of short scenes to presented at the end of the term.
