A Level Drama & Theatre Studies
Why choose Drama and Theatre?
This is an exciting course that explores Drama and Theatre Studies in a very practical way developing specific performance based skills whilst building an understanding and appreciation of a variety of texts and stylistic approaches. As well as developing skills as an actor, you will explore your own work and develop scripts and ideas utilising the approaches of different theorists and practitioners. In Year 2 this is further explored as you assume the role of a director on a prepared, set text. The work of contemporary theatre practice and viewing professional work will also be a feature of the course. This course develops valuable life skills including team-work, self-confidence, communication, and application of theory to practice.
How will I learn?
This course involves a unique combination of academic study and practical activity. Students learn through a series of lectures, workshops, master-classes by visiting professionals and attendance at live performances.
