Drama and Theatre Studies *FEES PAYABLE* at New Hall School

Course description

The course offers an opportunity to combine traditional skills associated with the theatre with the academic discipline of analysis and research. You will explore a variety of play texts from a practical perspective as an actor, a director, a designer and an informed audience member. You will be encouraged to value your own interpretation of how to stage the written word, working in a variety of mediums including physical theatre, site-specific, promenade, verbatim, symbolism and naturalism. You will study three theatre practitioners’ styles and evaluate how their work has informed modern theatre. During the course you will develop your ability to structure an effective dramatic performance and culminate your practical work with creating your own performance based on a variety of stimuli. The written exam requires you to fully understand two different eras in theatrical history and analyse the impact of the classical works on both a modern and contemporary audience. You will also be exposed to a variety of styles of professional performance both in the West End and fringe venues.

Entry requirements

At least a grade B in GCSE Drama (where applicable) and/or in GCSE English Language.
