Level 3 Drama

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs A. Alatini

Level 3 Drama students will explore work from a range of playwrights.
Students will devise and create their own performances telling their own stories. They will work directly from the text with a large scale performance that we will encourage them to direct and perform to an invited audience. Students have the opportunity to gain extra internal credits by completing a research project or writing a script. Students need to be aware that rehearsal time outside of class is essential at Level 3.

We encouraged our students to attend at least one live theatre performance as this will align with their External Exam at the end of the year.
