Our Advanced Drama – Theatre Making class is for young people serious about theatre and just love being on the stage. Many students in this class have performed in the Children’s Theatre productions and have gained significant experience through these. However, this class is designed for students interested in other elements of theatre, as well as performing. This includes writing, designing, devising theatre and directing.

Drama Module
Skills Module

In this class, students:
• Develop vocal techniques, including resonance, clarity, diction and work towards vocal and physical characterisation
• Advanced 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
• Collaboration – different ways of working together in a group to develop performance
• Explore different theatre traditions and forms
• Physical characterisation technique – a variety of different movement disciplines incorporating Laban
• Stage and theatre techniques such as working with levels on stage

• Experience in performing beyond drama classes
• A commitment and love of the performing arts
• Some knowledge to theatre history and conventions

Drama can also be a great way to find your tribe of other like-minded young people and the class is limited to 16 students.

This class develops a performance piece in the last term of the year to be performed for family and friends within class time.
