Drama offers students the opportunity to develop their confidence, interpersonal and team work skills, as part of a trusting group. Students will undertake study of: styles of theatre, the history of theatre, improvisation, playbuilding, acting, costuming, lighting, set, make-up, film and directing. Students will take part in short plays and individual performances at least once per term.
Those choosing this subject should be aware that a small amount of research is a requirement in the course. Attendance to theatre excursions throughout the year is expected. Students will develop knowledge, understanding and skills, individually and collaboratively, through:
- Making drama through imagined and created situations.
- Performing drama using theatrical styles and techniques.
- Appreciating drama through personal reflection and all aspects of the human experience.
