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. In Term 1 students learn about the fundamental skills of Improvisation as well as participating in a class ‘Theatre Sports’ Competition. Students also have the opportunity to delve into the history of Drama by exploring Greek Theatre with an emphasis on Tragedy and Comedy. Through the study of the Elements of Drama in Semester 2, students learn how to create strong dramatic meaning for effective performance. Drama is a highly practical subject that uses drama 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).
