Odyssey of The Mind
This year, Ms. Love and Ms. Clanton will be sponsoring an Odyssey of the Mind team. Odyssey of the Mind is a performance-based competition where students develop their creativity through writing and producing a short play based on an assigned prompt. The program also measures team improvisational skills through a lightning round contest, where they're assigned a spontaneous problem the day of competition. Students who join will participate in at least three 90-minute practices each week in preparation for the competition. Students will get hands on experience in theater production, performance, set/ costume design, and creative, fast paced, critical thinking.
