English theatre option for classes of 3, 2e, 1re
The possibility to act in English has been offered to LCD students since 2007.
For 5 years British director Tony Kingston rehearsed long and short plays with students from all classes willing to stay on after school.
In 2011 the principal of our school, M. Robert Bohnert, gave us the possibility to integrate the English theatre workshop into option classes for 3e, 2e and 1re students.
On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons our expert Tony Kingston teaches speaking and acting skills through improvisation work and acting exercises. Students read and try out extracts from various plays before finally deciding on the most suitable one for the group to perform at the end of the year.
Besides considerably improving students’ fluency in the English language and self-confidence, this course encourages active participation, team work, creativity and improvisation: in small groups students generate ideas in the rehearsal and contribute their own ideas regarding set design, costume and staging of the play they are going to perform.
This year the Ire drama option class will have their performance on Sunday, 2nd April 2017, and the 2e and 3e drama option classes will perform on Sunday, 18th June 2017. The performances start at 19hrs (Salle des Fêtes of the LCD AB building, 32 avenue de la Gare, Diekirch).
