Mission statement

MISSION STATEMENT

  • Thomas Edison High School Theater is the student-centered, student-governed after-school theater production company of Thomas Edison High School.

  • We seek to work collaboratively to improve our skills of performance and production while growing the greater artistic community of Thomas Edison High School.  


Staff structure

STAFF STRUCTURE

  • Now is the time for students to take active leadership in the governance of this body.

  • EXAMPLES of great student leadership already:

    • Skye Horton choreographing Smokey Joe’s Cafe

    • Adam Balvin taking major leadership in Smokey Joe’s Café lighting design.

    • Morgan Kuikka operating a very complicated lighting plan for Antigone.

    • Alyson Westerhaus facilitating much of the publicity for Charlotte’s Web

    • Oshana Reich establishing the framework for lettering criteria for T.E.H.S. Theater, and made some super cool certificates this afternoon.


Staff structure cont d

STAFF STRUCTURE, Cont’d

  • Mr. Athorn’s Responsibilities as Artistic Director

    • Choose plays that are appropriate for our students, our strengths and our restrictions.

    • Establish budgets and organize adult staff so that we can have successful productions.

    • Assist the student leadership, fill in holes where they may exist, and evaluate the performance of student leaders.

    • Seek opportunities for growth within the community—inside and outside of Edison.


Staff structure cont d1

Staff structure, cont’d

  • Student Leader Responsibilities

    • Timely fulfillment of duties as described in job descriptions

    • Establish and defend a culture of accountability among student-artists.

    • Represent Thomas Edison High School Theater with pride to Edison classmates/peers, recruitment at community events and elementary or middle schools.

    • Serve as a board of student leadership—directing Mr. Athorn and other adults as to the desired direction of the program, especially in times of difficulty.


Staff structure cont d2

STAFF STRUCTURE, CONT’D

  • It is the intention to have two different bodies of student leaders—the two bodies certainly may overlap.

  • First, a YEARLONG PRODUCTION STAFF that oversees the entire program.

  • Second, a student staff for each theater production.


Production meetings

PRODUCTION MEETINGS

  • In 2012-2013, we will have weekly production meetings for all of our shows.

    • Twofold purpose:

      • 1. An important teaching and learning time for students interested in all aspects of production and theater administration.

      • 2. A personal recognition of the need for accountability from the adult leadership about the production goals and schedule.

  • Weekly.

  • All individual play staff will attend weekly, all yearlong staff will attend monthly.

  • WHEN?


Production meetings1

PRODUCTION MEETINGS

  • Company-wide (cast and crew) commitment to STRIKE/POST-MORTEM. Helping with the clean-up associated with the previous production and reflecting on the successes/failures.

  • Will be a required date on the audition form for all participants.


Lettering requirements

Lettering Requirements

  • Oshana Reich has done a lot of great work to set some lettering criteria for Thomas Edison High School Theater, and creating a certificate.

  • IF you are going to get yourself a letter jacket…

    • I have “DRAMA” Letters that I will give out, but if you would prefer a blank “E”, then you will have to show the certificate to Mr. Ginther.

    • Then, you can get a bar for each show you do, along with the drama logo for the right arm of your jacket.

  • Oshana will be the administrator of the document that keeps all that information straight!

Spring play

SPRING PLAY

  • The spring production will be an original play, written by a combination of community members and/or students and rehearsed in a workshop style.

  • The spring play will be directed by a guest director, to be named.

  • It’s time for there to be a Thomas Edison High School Theater production that is NOT directed by Mr. Athorn, and I think the spring play will be a great time for that.

  • AUDITIONS: March 18 and 19.

  • PERORMANCES: May 16-18 (into Art-a-Whirl).

  • STRIKE/POST-MORTEM: May 20


Future planning

FUTURE PLANNING

  • Let’s make a meeting or two for the summer, and decide how we are going to begin to structure the planning for next season beginning in the fall.

  • Or start some GoogleDocs? Facebook groups? How can we be a functioning communication body?
