NASELLE - Naselle High School drama students participated in an acting workshop on Friday, Nov. 2, sponsored by the Comet Booster Club and presented by the Missoula directors.
The students enjoyed participating in group acting games and learning about the concentration, skill and voice projection that it takes to be an actor. High school students bravely stepped out of their comfort zone to participate in pantomime and improvisational activities. They came away with the realization that drama is not only fun but can also help build confidence and creative thinking skills.
The Naselle Youth Camp students participated in an acting and improvisational workshop on Wednesday, Oct. 31, again sponsored by the Comet Booster Club and presented by the Missoula directors from Montana. The directors were in Naselle conducting a weeklong play for elementary, middle and high school students.
The directors taught the students about important improvisational skills needed for building scenes, including presenting a beginning, a middle with a conflict and an end with a resolution to the conflict. Students participated in improvisational games and short skits to help demonstrate character and scene building. Students highly enjoyed the workshop and requested the directors come back again.
This is the second year for teaching drama at the Naselle Youth Camp and students continue to learn confidence in themselves through games and scene building techniques, as explained by teacher Barbara Swanson.
