Students explaining their toga design

In the Drama Workshop class, students are studying ancient Greek theatre. Students researched various chiton, toga and tunic designs; Greek characters, gods and goddesses. Then they designed and constructed a "costume," which one group member modeled while the other two explained their research-based design decisions.

As the audience sat up on a hill in the amphitheater, the actors on stage performed scenes from The Frogs, Prometheus Bound, Oedipus, Medea and The Trojan Women.
