Theatresports, Theatre Productions and Stage Crew, open to all boys
Theatresports is an improvisation activity which uses games to teach performance technique, collaboration and co-operation. Students only need enthusiasm and a willingness to participate in various group activities to increase their skills in performance.
Students from Years 7 – 10 have the opportunity to participate in weekly improvisation workshops. Students from Years 7 and 8 will explore spontaneous creativity and work on their ensemble skills through the use of improvised performance and activities. Students from Years 9 and 10 will work on their ability to accept and extend offers in performance and build their confidence in self-expression.
Participants will train in preparation for the School's Theatresports Competition held at various schools over Sydney, culminating in a Grand Final at the Enmore Theatre.
