Highland Hall Drama Club Grades 7-12

The Highland Hall Drama Club will consist of all of those who love the theatre while exploring all that goes in to putting on a show including performance, lights and sound production, sets, and storytelling. This collection of theatre loving people will emerge with creativity and imaginative play, a more acute sense of listening and observation skills, and a greater self confidence.

 

The HHDC will meet once a week for 2 hours after school on Thursdays.  There will be three-hour Saturday rehearsal the weekend before each performance. There will be 2 productions, one in the Fall and one in Spring. 

 

Drama Club will be led by Jim Ortlieb.  He has had a career in theatre, film, and television these past 42 years as an actor, director, and teacher with major acting roles in theaters in New York, Chicago, Ireland, Paris, and here in Los Angeles. Jim owned and directed Chicago Actors Project, the professional acting studio, during the 1980’s where he taught the Sanford Meisner technique and directed student productions. From 1991-1996 in Ireland, he taught drama to high school students learning English from France, Germany, Spain, Austria, and other European countries.
