Theatre Design & Technology
This is a UC Approved, a-g year-long course.
Together, we will be embarking on a journey of exploration that I hope will be gratifying for all. In order for everyone in the class to have an enriching and engaging experience, there are certain expectations that need to be followed.
This class is a safe space for everyone! Hateful or hurtful comments will not be tolerated.
Every student is required to see at least one theatrical performance per semester. These theatrical performances include:
School performances outside of MHS (another HS, middle school…)
Community theatre productions (Center Stage, South Bay Musical Theatre, Sunnyvale Community Players, etc.)
Professional productions at local or nearby theatres (TheatreWorks, SHN, City Lights, Broadway San Jose, Teatro Visión, etc…)
You must write a review for each of the performances that you attend. These reviews are due within one week of your having seen this production.
