Welcome toDaphne High School Theater ArtsThe arts - dance, music, theatre, and visual arts—are among our most innate and essential elements of human nature. The arts not only shape and extend our ability to think, manipulate, and symbolize our world, but also produce high levels of productive thinking. Arts sharpen and extend a person’s ability to express, understand, and absorb feelings and ideas essential in our rapidly growing society. The variety of Fine Arts offered by the high schools in Baldwin County will foster creativity across the curriculum.

Theater IVThis class will focus on advanced levels of script writing, directing, and the performance of a production.

Possession of a solid theatre background, maturity, dependability, analytical skills, self-discipline, self-motivation, and focus are required characteristics.IB Theatre SLInternational Baccalaureate Theatre Arts programme aims to help students understand the nature of the theatre; to understand it by making it as well as studying it; to understand it not only with their minds but with their senses, their bodies and their emotions; to understand the form it takes in cultures other than their own; and through this understanding better to understand themselves, their society and their world. The course involves the development of performance skills through working on devised and scripted scenes, some of which must be presented to an audience. Students will also study drama from the point of view of the director and will investigate methods of turning a play script into performance. Practical exploration of theatre from different cultures is also a key element in the course. A theatre production - a collaborative exercise animating a broad spectrum of talents and skills in which the principles and practices of theatre are explored by the students - is the high point of their practical and theoretical studies.ONE DAPHNE, ONE FAMILY, GO TROJANS!
