Cultivating Creativity Through Theatre Arts
Aragon High School Drama strives to be a welcoming space for students to explore self expression through the arts of acting and technical theatre. Shane Smuin, Aragon’s Artistic Director, believes that theatre is a conservatory: a safe space where self expression and personal growth is cultivated, encouraged, and developed.
In Beginning Drama class, students begin the process of self expression through theatre games, monologues, scenes, published plays, and original projects.
In Advanced Drama, students deepen their understanding through advanced improvisational work, classical monologues and scripts. As well, students write their own short plays culminating in an on-stage final performance. At the conclusion of the year, the students also perform and produce a One-Act Musical.
In Technical Theatre, students learn practical hands-on skills and techniques for the creation of sets, designed by Fred Eiras, Set Designer, for Aragon Drama’s mainstage productions. Through this process, they gain a deeper understanding of the technical and design elements of theatre.
