The Arts

Drama

The Drama Department provides an opportunity for personal growth on many levels. A strong emphasis is placed on the development of actors and theatre practitioners.

Learners receive tuition in all practical aspects of theatre. Practical training includes acting, voice, movement, physical theatre, stagecraft, mime, and poetry workshops. There is also a large Theory component which covers the study of: play texts, theatre history, the history of costume, the history of literature, voice theory, ritual and mythology.

Every available opportunity is given to drama learners to perform in our numerous productions as well as in the presentation of class work, and every effort is made to expose learners to theatre agents and potential employers.

The Drama Department has received numerous awards and accolades over the years, including Awards in 2008, 2009 2010 and 2011 for Excellence in Dramatic Arts in our district
