In the drama department we offer the following kinds of enrichment:
gr. 9: The ISP research project focuses on theatre history/dance history/ theatre technology. Students choose their own topic and follow a schedule of progress checks; they choose their own end product, for example an essay, info board and presentation, or built project (costume, prop, set design, film, recording, etc).
gr. 10: similar to gr. 9 ISP
gr. 11: The focus is on the Modern Era (approx. 1880's till 1910). The ISP is also focused on this period and consists of essay writing, play analysis and performance.
gr. 12: The ISP is very open; students choose an area of interest and propose a final product and schedule. Some suggestions are play writing, directing, creating sound design, lighting design, costume design, set design, producing radio shows, developing promotion, stage management, etc. Students have sometimes used work that they are doing in the broader theatre community as ISP.
Note: Because of the creative nature of this program, enrichment opportunities exist in every performance assignment in each year.
