Theatre

Philosophy

Galloway’s theatre program embraces each student’s individual skills and gifts, while simultaneously building community and ensemble. Led by a team of professional theatre artists, students discover their own voice and encourage one another to let their voices be heard as they grow in empathy and perspective. Galloway students discover and explore concepts related to plot, character, language, process, and product in dramatic presentations in the classroom and on the stage.

Early Learning

Imagination and creativity are enhanced through dramatic play as classroom teachers work with professional theatre artists to create opportunities for students to develop understanding and empathy around a variety of subjects. Examples of past class performances include fairytale theatre, living biographies, and poetry slams. Students enjoy performances by professional, visiting theatre artists and attend field trips to see performances at the Alliance Theater and Center for Puppetry Arts throughout the school year.

Middle Learning

All students in grades 5 and 6 participate in a semester long theatre exploratory in which they discover character, plot, conflict, actions and change while learning how to work together as a group. Guided by a theatre teaching artist, students engage in project based work designed to enlighten the creative process as students create their own original theatrical work. Students in grades 7 and 8 may elect to take classes that build on their experiences. These classes meet during regular school hours and create a safe environment for students to experience theatre with an option, but no pressure, to perform. Electives include Introduction to Stagecraft, Improvisation, Creative Process, and Musical Theater.

Upper Learning

Students in grades 9 – 12 may elect to take theatre classes that earn students credit while exploring, deepening, and honing their skills in acting technique, performance styles, ensemble physical training, playwriting structure and script analysis. Theatre electives include Introduction to Theatre, Acting 1 and 2, Playwriting, Directing and Improvisation. You can read course descriptions here.

Theatre Ensembles

The Galloway Junior Theatre Ensemble: Grades 6-8

For those students seeking performing opportunities the Junior Theatre Ensemble is a vivacious, fun and supportive, no-cut group available for students in grades 6 – 8. The Ensemble meets during the day as an elective class for students in grades 7 and 8 with rehearsals continuing after school two days a week. Students work with a team of theatre teachers to present two productions a year. The ensemble is modeled after the UL Galloway Theatre Ensemble and no prior acting or dancing experience is required.

The Galloway Theatre Ensemble: UL

For those who love to perform, The Galloway Theatre Ensemble is a “no-cut”, energetic, fun and supportive group of students who enjoy sharing their love of theatre with audiences. The ensemble is open to any student regardless of experience, and encourages discipline and dedication to the development of their craft. The ensemble presents three productions throughout the school year including a fall play, winter play and spring musical. Though rehearsals are scheduled after school (periods 8 and 9) the students receive course credit for their work. Theater Ensemble members are also given the opportunity to represent Galloway at various conferences and competitions to share their work with other schools in the region.
