The Fall semester has rapidly gone by. The 2nd 9 weeks is nearly over and 1/2 of the school year completed. NESA Tech has worked hard and been very successful. Enjoy the winter break, come back rested and ready to go.
Congratulations to the NESA techs who participated in the Greater San Antonio Area Auditions at Taft High School in the Northside School District. Piper Fergerson and Brabdon Delacruz. The did a great job and got many call backs.
Hello to NESA Tech new students, "SAFETY FIRST"
Meanwhile farewell to Seniors 2018
The summer assignment is pretty simple. Attend a live theatrical performance or concert this summer. Hold on to the ticket or program to turn in the 1st week of school. Also write a critique about what you saw. What is in a NESA Tech critique?
- Did you like it? Why? Discuss the why. Acting, singing, dancing, music; did you enjoy any of the production, just certain scenes, or all of it.
- Did the performance space enhance the production? Be detrimental to the production? Totally neutral? What was the space like. Which of the four types of theatrical production was the performance?
- How was the audio? Were you able to clearly hear and understand?
- How was the lighting? Did you have only visibility? Did the lighting enhance the production?
- How were the costumes? Good, bad, great? Helped or hurt the production?
- I would like the critique printed unless you have drafting style of handwriting.
- It is due the 1st week of school. I will not accept a summer critique after the Friday of the 1st week of school.
See you at school.
