Theatre students are taking the reins and directing their own plays, getting a taste of what it’s like to run the show like a true director.

Ms. Amy Learn’s seventh block Theatre Workshop class has an idea in the works to let the students direct their own 10-minute, one act plays. The plays allow students to see what it’s like to lead a play.

“Students interested in directing chose a specific piece they wanted to pursue; they will then cast and direct it,” said Ms. Learn, OHS theatre director. “Everybody in the class will work on the set, props, and all of the elements.”

Theatre Workshop is a class oriented around the elements of production for a play. The class goes in depth with each aspect, from choosing a play all the way to designing the set.

“Theatre Workshop is the capstone class in the theatre program, so it is focusing in on all the aspects of theatre but adding in directing as a component.” Learn explained. “We’ve done script analysis, character study, and dug deeper into dramaturgy.”

Seven short plays are on the schedule. The performances will be held May 3-4 in the drama center. The shows will start at 7 p.m. each night.
