Mrs. Cristina H. Rivas

Welcome to my Talented Theatre class! This is my 6th year teaching at Harry Hurst Middle School. I am looking forward to working with 6th-8th grade Theatre students in their journey through learning to become a more engaged young artist. 

In this class the student will learn to develop an understanding the theatre arts by studying acting theory and improve his/her acting skills through use of improvisation as well as memorized, prepared scenes/monologues.  The student will also study some brief theater history, technical aspects of theater, and various acting techniques. The student will also learn how to become a productive audience member, and be able to constructively critique other performances and productions.

Please sign up for your grade level Google Classroom to receive assignments and updates regularly. I look forward to being a part of your young artist's journery to becoming a more confident performer.
