Students must have received a ‘3’ overall grade or abover in year 10: Drama A or must negotiate permission to enter the subject with the Learning Area Leader.
The full-year Drama course is for students who are interested in developing their passion for Drama, and are interested pursuing it at a senior level. Students will develop advanced acting techniques, skills and elements of production.
There is an initial focus on Shakespeare and Elizabethan Theatre where students undertake practical workshops exploring Shakespearean movement, gesture and language. Students will be provided with the opportunity to attend a Shakespearian live performance supporting the in class learning as they write a live performance review of the show they watch.
Students will apply the knowledge and skills gained throughout the year, in a public performance, in either an off-stage or on-stage role. Students will experience the rehearsal process, as they collaborate to create a class production, which is presented on the Senior Campus to a live audience made up of parents, family and friends.
Throughout the course the students will be required to maintain an Arts Process Journal demonstrating evaluation and reflection, undertake written assignments, oral presentations and theatre reviews.
Required excursions: $30.00 for attendance and transport to a live, professional Drama production (usually in evenings).
