On Tuesday, March 13th, 9Young performed two original short melodrama plays, The Secret Life of CISB Students and Spotlight to an audience of grade 6, 9 and 10 students. After learning all about melodrama conventions (such as stock characters and asides) in our unit Drama Queens, students were given the task of creating a modern-day melodrama. This allowed them to further explore our statement of inquiry, “the techniques and systems of a genre can transfer through time and space”. The performers received very positive feedback from audience members. Fantastic work, 9Young!
