Drama Matter 2015 East DallasDuring the Month of April, the members of the East Dallas BGC participated in the Drama Matters Program. Drama Matter is a weekly program consisting of 60-minute sessions segmented for beginner, intermediate and advanced members. Each session is also adapted to fit the age of participants. Sessions consist of a short warm-up; a core activity of games, script work or performance; and a 10-minute cool-down. At the end of the month, each group participated in a scripted production of The Wizard of Oz, Chicken Little, The Tortoise and the Hare, and a play about interrupted fairytales called “A Mixed-Up Fairytale.” Branch Director Syreeta Pritchett said, “The youth did an outstanding job learning about script writing, costume design, blocking, set design and memorizing lines. Parents came out to see the event, and we had a blast!”
