Theater Classes
     Many people think that theater is simply about getting in front of an audience and reciting lines. However, there are many classes that the theater department offers other than just regular theater, including stagecraft and physical theater. North is offering a new theater course this year. In film studies, students will explore the history of cinema, going all the way from silent films to modern films.
     If students aren’t interested in acting, theater offers other options as well. There are many behind the scenes skills that every play requires, such as carpentry, painting, lighting and sound mixing. “With so many things to do, no matter what you like, you can connect to something in the theater,” said John Doty, head of the theater program.
     Many students take theater classes first semester, but not enough participate year-round. “We need more kids in Intro. to Theater second semester to balance out the amount of kids who take it first,” said Doty. 
     Theater is a great way to meet new people, but it can be even more beneficial. “Helping with plays is a great way to show your support for the school,” said Michelle Luchterhand, a sophomore and a student in advanced theater.
     For more information on joining a theater class or production, see a counselor, Doty, or a theater student.
