Level 3 Drama

03DRA
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 using the ideas of a Drama theorist to influence their performance style. They will also work directly from the text with a large scale performance 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.
