Throughout the year students will build on their Year 7 Drama experiences by enhancing their acting skills and confidence, and developing and refining group-work skills in our modern Performing Arts Centre. Students study the Elements of Drama, while learning how to create strong dramatic meaning for effective performance. Later in the year, students learn about the techniques associated with stage combat. Students learn from scripted plays, while also devising their own dramatic works. Improvisation is a key concept that is covered extensively in the Drama course. Drama is a highly practical subject that uses games, movement and script work as a means of learning.

Course Requirements: Students are required to have a pair of ‘theatre blacks’ for this subject (black pants or shorts and a black t-shirt).
