Creation and communication in term two drama!

Wow! What a fantastic start to term two Bazil Grumble drama! It’s been a busy couple of weeks as the students have settled into classes, and started to look forward to the end of term showcases.

An integral part of this term’s work is the contributions of the students in devising an exciting showcase for family and friends. The children have accepted this task with vigour and enthusiasm, with all of our teachers have commented on the high level of creation in each of the classes.

“The class was really wonderful today! The students were focused the entire lesson and it was really lovely that everyone had the opportunity to offer their input.” – Rebecca, Yeronga State School Masterclass teacher

“I was so proud of my class this week. They have all been so generous and caring towards each other. I’ve been so happy to see the students use positive language in their dealings with each other, and are very encouraging of everyone’s contributions.” – Heidi, Windsor State School Superstars teacher

We have even received some incredibly lovely feedback from parents this term, who have taken the time to let us know how their child is progressing:

“Our daughter has gained so much out of attending Bazil Grumble, and I can see a direct link with her confidence in speaking to a large group!” – Parent, Wilston State School 

As we move through the term, the students will start to block their end of term showcase and continue to learn lines, while also continue learning exciting improvisation and characterisation techniques. We’re so excited to see all of the hard work culminate in each of the showcases!

Don’t forget to make note in your diary of your child’s end of term showcase date. You can view all of the dates by clicking here.

Do not hesitate to contact the Bazil Grumble office if we can provide you with any further information in the lead up to the showcase dates on 0411 246 487.

Welcome to term one drama!

The team at Bazil Grumble are so excited to be starting the year with the amazing Peter Pan! We kicked off the term with auditions for the end of term performance, as well as working on the students’ breathing and projection: two skills that are essential for any budding actor!

The Bazil Grumble teachers encouraged students to think about their lungs and breathing, and how this will improve their ability to sustain projection. Many teachers noted that they were already seeing improvements in their classes:

 “After learning how to properly use their breath and voice for performance, the students were encouraged to jump up in front of the class and say a line using their new found projection. Mackenzie has some stage fright and didn’t want to get up in front of the class. Mackenzie’s friend PK got up and they both demonstrated the line. Afterwards, I told Mackenzie that her projection was so good that I could actually hear her over PK and that she did exceptionally well. In the next activity she really came out of her shell and was offering up some great lines in her improvisation.
– Phoebe, Ironside Masterclass.

 Despite the fun learning new skills and playing drama games, everyone was very excited to learn what role they were to play in the end of term performance:

 “The students enjoyed the vocal projection and breathing exercises and were SO keen to see which roles they’d been selected for!” – Hayley, Windsor Superstars.

 We are now busy exploring blocking and lines, and we have to commend our students on their outstanding focus:

 “This week’s class was AMAZING. We did the run of the play first before the activities and they were so focused.” – Duncan, Holland Park Shining Stars.

 “Rehearsal time! This week, we started blocking our play. The students really enjoyed this. Their energy was fantastic and they listened well.” – Jess, Toowong Superstars.

 We are so excited to see all the students hard work as they continue adapting this beautiful and much loved tale into an entertaining and fun performance. We’ll be sending out the end of term performance dates soon, so do keep an eye on inboxes!

It’s Showtime! Here Comes The Polar Express!

As any drama enthusiast will tell you, there is a lot of time, effort and commitment that goes into creating a performance. There is forming the script, becoming comfortable with your fellow actors, learning lines, devising, blocking, polishing, costuming and finally performing in front of an audience. However, most importantly, drama is a great deal off fun where you meet new friends, develop skills and play drama games. Not to mention the excitement of performing in front of your friends and family!

Wilston

A Christmas tree, surrounded by presents in our Wilston Masterclass

Our teaching teams have been so proud of how our students have embraced their drama family and worked incredibly hard to create and perform the wonderful tale that is The Polar Express:

“We went through the show and it was great to see most of them not relying on scripts anymore. We went over a few parts a couple of times, but in general the show is looking fantastic. I am very pleased.” Lisa-Marie, Holland Park Masterclass.

“They all displayed a high level of focus, and their behaviour throughout the class was incredible.” Jess, Wilston Masterclass.

A big thank you must also go to our wonderfully supportive parents, who have assisted with the grand task that is line learning:

“The students not only knew their lines but also knew the cue line before it. I was very impressed with the work they have put in at home.” Jane, Wilston Shining Stars.

 “The certificate today went to Amy for knowing all her lines (like most of the students) as she was super focused and knew her cues.” Zoe, Eagle Junction Shining Stars.

 For anyone who may need a bit extra help, we have listed some handy hints on how to learn lines with an emphasis on fun. These tips will help ensure students do not need their script on stage (something we strongly encourage) and require minimal prompting on performance day!

  • Remind students to speak slowly and clearly, and use lots of expression in their voice and on their face. Remind them to lift their chin and hold their shoulders back so they look confident.
  • Say the line before their line (this is their cue line) and ensure that they know that their line is next. This is one of the most difficult aspects of drama.
  • Ask your child to think about the type of voice their character would use. Record your child saying their lines on your phone or other recording device. Play it back. Ask them to try again using a different type of voice. Also, you can experiment by holding the device further from them so that they have to speak up for their voice to be heard.
  • Act out the scenes with your child. Let them hear you use character voices, laugh together and have fun with the script! ‘Playing’ with our children creates wonderful memories. They grow up so fast and start to lose their love of play so make the most of these opportunities to laugh and learn together.
  • Ask them to say their lines in front of the mirror so that they can see their facial expressions. Most children love looking at themselves and so they love this task!

We all have such a love of drama and performing, and we are very much looking forward to sharing this with all the family and friends attending our end of term performances!  If you’re still unsure of when your child’s performance is being held, please click here to view all of the important dates!
