Been doing drama for some time, and just love it? Want to develop your performance skills with like-minded others?

Our Junior Advanced Drama class is for young people with experience in drama. Many students in this class aspire to perform in the Children’s Theatre productions, and wish to develop the skills needed to take on roles on MSTYP’s main-stage productions.

Term Modules

Each term this class works on two modules; an drama module, and a skills based module. A certificate is presented at the end of Term 4, as proof of completion.

Drama Module
Skills Module

In this class, students:
• Develop vocal techniques, including resonance, clarity, diction and work towards vocal and physical characterisation.
• Improvisation
• Devised theatre – different ways of making theatre and working in a group, as well as utilising the performance space to create interesting, dynamic prepared performances
• Collaborate with others in the group to develop performances
• Bring scripts to life on stage
• Explore different theatre traditions and forms
• Develop Physical characterisation techniques

The class is limited to 16 students – we believe small classes are the best way to learn drama!
This class develops a performance piece in the last term of the year to be performed for family and friends within class time.
