“Who can be in theatre?

At Medlin we offer many different classes that fit many different types of theatre lovers! 

  • If you have NEVER taken a theatre course and are in 6th grade, you should take "Intro to Theatre". In this class you will learn all about the basics of theatre, from ensemble building to acting to tech theatre. You will end the year by participating in a theatre showcase! 

  • If you have NEVER taken a theatre course and are in 7th or 8th grade, you should take "Theatre I". In this class you will learn all about the basics of theatre, from ensemble building to acting to tech theatre. You will end the year by participating in a theatre showcase! 

  • If you HAVE taken either Intro to Theatre or Theatre I and want to focus on producing shows (and don't mind spending time outside of school), you may want to take "Theatre Productions". In this class, students will participate in a minimum of 2 shows a year as well as other activities within Medlin like the Talent Show. This class is an audition/interview based class only, as students need to have a strong skill set and must be prepared for many hands-on projects. 

If you HAVE taken either Intro to Theatre or Theatre I and are interested in continuing your craft and learning all that you can about theatre, you should take "Theatre II/III". This is an in-depth class for students who want to continue to advance their skills.

 

Do I have to be in a class to work in the theatre?

 As of right now this is the only way we will do shows at Medlin. Each class will participate in at least one show a year.
