Duration of Course
Drama promotes learning about life through enactment and reflection on enactment. In Drama students focus on the use of body and voice as expressive tools in genres such as storytelling, mime, and play production. Year 10 Drama consolidates the skills of performance, audience and the devising of theatre and develops the practical elements of theatre production. Students explore different genres in their historical context from which they evolve or devise representative performances.
Attendance at out-of-hours rehearsals and performances is compulsory in this course.
Successful completion of Drama is useful (but not compulsory) preparation for SACE Drama at Stage 1 or Stage 2. It provides a good foundation for students wishing to pursue a career in the performing arts, media or public relations.
