Theatre Studies AS/A2 at The Brakenhale Academy

Course description

Theatre Studies has significant career benefits, but also provides immense benefits for social skills, confidence building and channelling creativity.
What will I study?
Theatre Studies involves both practical and written aspects, with group practical performances, individual monologues, written studies of play texts, reviews of theatrical performances, and analysis of the historical performance conditions for a Shakespeare play.
You will study a range of theatrical practitioners and techniques; focusing on several stimulus texts to explore the historical, social, cultural and political contexts.
How will I be Assessed?
An external moderator will assess group performances and individual monologues; written work will be internally moderated and your final unit involves an externally marked written exam.
What does it lead to?
Theatre Studies is an ideal precursor for Performing Arts courses, but will also be of significant benefit to any career path that involves expressive communication including law; creative subjects such as directing, writing, producing, performing, design; and teaching.
