Drama and Theatre Studies A level at Hills Road Sixth Form College

Course description

"Drama is life with the dull bits cut out" Alfred Hitchcock

Why choose Drama & Theatre Studies?


Drama encompasses all of human experience and we consume more of it per day than at any other time in human history. Our need to understand ourselves through the mirror of stage or screen becomes ever more urgent as the world becomes more complex. The study of theatre will develop you intellectually, artistically and socially, as you explore ethical issues in a way that is designed not only to entertain, but to make your audience think, challenge and question. You will explore everything that goes into making great theatre, from text and performance to technical elements and design. You will study superb plays by brilliant playwrights and perform them alongside your own devised work. You will explore the work of the most influential directors of the modern age, supported by a dynamic programme of theatre trips and professional workshops. Essential for those going on to specialist drama or technical training and ideal for those with performance flair wishing to broaden their curriculum.

"Opportunity. Intrigue. Delight. Theatre Studies at Hills Road will offer you the opportunity to delve in to beautifully crafted theatre and writing with guidance from dedicated and motivational teachers." Shiona Luke
