Theatre Studies at All Saints School

Course description

Theatre Studies is an enjoyable and rewarding subject which aims to encourage in students the development of appropriate theatre skills; to extend their knowledge and understanding and an extensive appreciation of live theatre.

The course involves studying play texts from historic to contemporary playwrights. Students will also encounter the theory and practice of leading theatre practitioners. All written work is accompanied by workshop style lessons to ensure that the emphasis is on the performance perspective of a Director, Actor and Designer. We also research the social background and staging conventions to place the texts in their period.

In Year 12 students will study, prepare and perform a published play and choose a practitioner as their inspiration for style.

In Year 13 students work towards a piece of their own devising, again influenced by a theatrical style encountered on the course.

Theatre visits are an integral part of the course.
