Welcome to TVMS Theatre!
My name is Amy Fryar and I am the theatre teacher at Terra Vista. I am so thrilled to be joining the incredible TVMS Fine Arts Department for my 7th year as an educator! I have always loved theatre, and now that I am officially a director I don't have to be embarrassed by all the show tunes I know by heart!
We are going to have so much fun this year. We'll cover theatre history, set design, costume/makeup design, lighting, sound, pantomime, improvisation, auditioning, play analysis, playwriting, and of course...performing!
I know this year will look different from all the years before, and it can be overwhelming and a little scary to face so many unknowns. The theatre has always been a safe space for me, and my goal is to create that same feeling of peace and acceptance for all my students. When you think of theatre you probably only think of being on stage in front of an audience, but you will hear me say over and over this year: EVERYTHING YOU LEARN IN THEATRE HAS VALUE.
I want every student in my class to find their voice. whether that is acting on stage, or designing an awesome lighting plot! There is so much to discover and I honestly believe that, despite everything else going on, it's going to be an amazing year!
