Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms C. Nicklin

Y13 Drama further develops students’ skills in collaboration, innovation and critical thinking. Internal Achievement Standards include three performance opportunities: script interpretation, devising to realise a concept and a substantial acting role in a significant production. Students may also be offered a directing opportunity. As preparation for the external standards, students will need to experience theatre visits in order to demonstrate an understanding of live performance. An optional external paper is to interpret a prescribed text to demonstrate knowledge of a theatre form or period. 

Scholarship Drama will be offered to Level 3 Drama students wishing to further their understanding of Drama performance and practices.
