Adriel Gamez, Theatre Director


Mr. Gamez (Mr. G) is very excited to share his knowledge of theater and performance with the students of OHMS. In 2004, Mr. G graduated from the American Musical & Dramatic Arts Academy (AMDA) in New York. He continued his theatrical education under the direction and guidance of Stewart Solomon, becoming a professional actor at a very young age. As theater has been at the fore-front of his entire life, including his adolescence, he understands the benefits theater can have for any child. Mr. G is also a proud member of the International Thespian Society and enjoys all aspects of developing a production with school age children. Mr. G has been awarded and acknowledged in the SWFL theater community for his performance and direction, and is excited to create magic with the students of OHMS. In 2012, Mr. G graduated from Ashford University with a Bachelors Degree in Child Psychology, minoring in Non-Verbal Communication & Crisis Intervention. Then in 2017, with a Masters in Public Administration. Mr. G has an extensive background in theater, dance, and voice performance and is excited to join the performing arts team at OHMS!

Acting and Theatre Programs include Acting 1, Acting 2, and Advanced Theatre.

In Acting 1 and 2, students learn the foundations of acting, including movement for the stage, breathe support, and articulation. By participating in structured improvisational games, students will become comfortable performing and speaking in front of people. Acting 1 places an emphasis on self-esteem building and conquering stage fright. In Acting 2 students apply skills they learned into performance in the form of monologues, duet scenes, and reader's theatre. Students begin to explore various performance theories, such as Stanislavski and Meisner. 

In Advanced Theatre, students use skills learned in Acting 1 and 2 and are given more creative control of their performances, including selecting performance material and playwriting. Students will also explore technical theatre, including design (lights, sound, costumes, set) and duties (stage management, directing). Students in Advanced Theatre work collaboratively with one another and frequently peer teach.
