This school year Capital High partnered with Theatre LILA to form "Lab 360," a project where resident teaching artists worked with students from the school's creative writing class to write narratives and perform a variety of scenes, poems, songs and theatrical pieces.
Through a variety of theater games and acting exercises students learned to collaborate, ignite their creativity and improve their leadership and communication skills.
They also took their imagination and real life stories and put them into writings. Each student kept a journal to explore different styles of writing including: dialogue, argumentative pieces, monologues, poems/spoken word and songs.
These journal writings became source material for a final performance, where pieces written entirely by students from Capital High were performed by a combination of students and Theatre LILA actors at the Overture Center for the Arts on December 20th!
