Theater Production:  Much Ado About Nothing

 

This spring the Theatre class will be presenting Shakespeare's "MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING".


The nine hours of class will be used for character development, costuming, prop building, reading and staging this play. There will be 44 hours of rehearsals and 24 hours of performances.

All students should read the play and watch a version of the movie during the Christmas break, and be prepared to work on the script when class begins. 

You may find the play online at:

and the movie information can be found at:

 Assignments for character parts will be made on the first or second day of class. Everyone will be given a part on stage, but all may not be speaking parts. We welcome any students into the class that would like to work backstage in sound, lighting, costuming and sets/props.  Each of the older students will be given backstage roles:  Stage Manager, Wardrobe Mistress, Props Master, Assistant Director, Lighting and Sound Technicians, Script Manager, Hair & Make-Up, etc.  They will be building on the skills learned last year, and developing new skills that go into putting together a stage production.

All students will be required to have a Facebook account, as that is how we communicate for the class and production.

Principles following the Judeo-Christian world view will be used and there will be prayer offered before classes.

 

Each student is expected to live as a responsible and honorable person.  When students attend FAF, they become identified with Home Front Educators.  It is expected that their conduct will reflect favorably upon HFE and the Theatre Program at all times.   Therefore, the Honor Code is an integral part of the daily structure of classes, which predicates the assumption that students are honorable and have the right to be trusted.  Each student must take personal responsibility in accepting the Honor Code.  The Honor Code encompasses academics, behavior, and character.  You will be expected to sign compliance with this code on the first class day.

 

“I pledge to always act in an honest, honorable, and accountable manner and expect the same of my fellow students. I agree to promote exemplary behavior at all times and understand that there will be consequences for inappropriate actions.”
