StageCats’ Production of Selfie

The CISB StageCats had their first rehearsals for Selfie by Bradley Hayward over the weekend and throughout the week. This is the first small-cast production for the StageCats, with only 8 actors taking the stage! We are looking forward to sharing this intimate theatre experience with the audience. Tickets for the show go on sale Monday, September 5th at the CISB front desk. Because this show will be staged in a unique way, there are only 40 tickets available for each show! So buy your tickets early for September 20th (Tuesday), September 22nd (Thursday) or September 23rd (Friday) at 6 pm! Only 20 RMB! Check this blog regularly for updates on our rehearsal process. Hope to see you there!

Grade 6 & 8 Update

New units!

This has been a great week for grade 6 and 8 Theatre Arts classes! The Grade 6 students started their new unit called “Is Anybody Out There…?” which focuses on connecting with an audience. Students completed a post-it activity highlighting the differences and similarities between movies and live performances, and also started learning about how to create an effective tableau.

The grade 8 Theatre class has continued learning about improv this week. We discussed improv techniques and the dos and don’ts of improv scenes. Students practiced these skills by playing improv games like Sound Effects and Freeze!

Welcome Back!

Welcome to the new CISB Theatre blog! School has just begun and we are already back in the swing of things here in the Theatre Arts Department.

The Grade 6 students have been taking part in lots of theatre games and activities to help build their confidence onstage. We’ve also been discussing what it means to build a classroom community. Grade 10 Theatre students visited some of our classes to perform short skits on how to be a respectful member of Theatre Arts class.

Grade 8 students are very excited about their first unit “Yes, And,” which is all about improvisation! It is a super fun, but challenging unit in which students learn how to act onstage without a script.

Again, welcome! And here’s to a great year of theatre.
