International Baccalaureate - Theatre at St Mary Magdelene Academy
This course is studied as part of the International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. You will examine theatre in its diversity of forms around the world through a critical study of the theory, history and culture of theatre. At the core of the Theatre course lies a concern with clarity of understanding, critical thinking, reflective analysis, effective involvement and imaginative synthesis—all of which should be achieved through practical engagement in theatre. The course emphasizes the importance of working individually and as a member of an ensemble. You will be encouraged to develop the organisational and technical skills needed to express yourself creatively in theatre. A further challenge is for you to become aware of your own perspectives and biases and to learn to respect those of others. You will be involved in several performances (theatre in the making - TiM), taking on a variety of performance and production roles. You will research, plan and deliver workshops as part of your assessments.
