Greek Theatre: focus on the role of the chorus

Overall rating 4 out of 54.6 (7 ratings)

Last updated 16 September 2014, created 15 March 2010, viewed 13,678

Resource with three lesson plans and resources for KS3 Drama students. Moving as a Greek chorus and speaking as a Greek chorus. I recommend this for year 7 students as an introduction to Greek Theatre. These lessons would link nicely into exploring extracts from a playscript such as 'Antigone.&# More…39; This might also be appropriate for y6 primary school students as part of a project on Ancient Greece.

Dear miss_drama_queen, many thanks for your wonderful lesson plans! Not having taught Greek Theatre before, I was wondering whether you'd be able to share the "Riddle sheet" that you make reference to in your lesson plan #2. Or are these riddles directly taken from the story of Oedipus? Kind regards, Rita
