Do you wish to pursue a degree or career in any of the Creative Arts? Are you interested in related subjects such as English, Social Sciences, and Humanities? Do you take an interest in group-based study? Are you a good team player? Are you a good observer? Do you enjoy analysis, discussion, and active participation? Do you enjoy watching plays and playing?
If you have answered ‘yes’ to one or more of these questions, Drama and Theatre Studies could be the right choice for you.
Taking Drama and Theatre Studies provides the opportunity for you to:
- Take part in public and examination performances of published, scripted plays;
- Explore, examine, and interpret a range of set texts;
- Utilise the methods and theories of theatre practitioners, Stanislavki, Brecht, and Artaud;
- Review and critically appraise professional theatrical performances at a range of different theatres;
- Devise and experiment with your own imaginative and creative ideas;
- Participate in workshops with theatre practitioners.
A programme of theatre visits is followed every half term to enhance understanding and application of theatrical and acting methods and techniques.
