9 Drama

    

Entry Recommendations: Satisfactory completion of Year 8 Drama.

This includes the study of Greek Theatre, Medieval Theatre, Commedia Dell'arte and Melodrama. The students will learn the History of Theatre primarily through improvisation where students will plan, rehearse and perform a short self-devised piece. They will also look at Publicity and Design elements in theatre; the skills they learn in this section will be utilised in their Group Production and Production Report. On occasions, students will be expected to attend lunchtime rehearsals. Students may be asked to attend film or live theatre performances. Students will be expected to attend lunchtime rehearsals.
