Drama and Theatre Studies AS at Bushey Meads School
To achieve the AS award you need to complete two units.
Unit 1: Drama Exploration. A study of two published plays. Recently studied plays
have included ‘Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me’ and ‘The Insect Play.’ Plays are
studied from a practical point of view. Your work in class will be supported by a
series of exploration notes.
Unit 2 : Plays in Performance. You will be part of a company working towards a
production of a published play. This will be teacher directed. Additionally, you will
have the opportunity to perform either a monologue or a duologue from another
published play. Alternatively this unit can be used to explore lighting, sound,
costume, set design, props, make-up or mask design.
In addition to the standard school requirements, it would be advantageous to have a C grade or higher in GCSE Drama or at least a Pass grade in BTEC Performing Arts. The main requirement is your passion for the theatre and a commitment to the subject.
