A-level Drama is an exciting exploration of drama and theatre. The course has a strong focus on practical dramatic skills as well as textual analysis and gives students a well rounded insight into what it takes to be a professional actor.
The course will help to develop your teamwork, communication and critical analysis skills as you work as part of a team to create performances based on text and stimuli, using the ideas and techniques of theatrical practitioners. Please note that although you will be performing in small groups each student is graded individually.
During the course you will develop your ability to study and analyse plays from multiple perspectives including those of the performer, the designer and the director.
Facilities available include: The Merlin Theatre (a 240 seat black box venue, equipped with industry standard digital sound and lighting control); two drama studios; set and props construction workshop; costume store; and sewing room.
