Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms C. Nicholson


LEARNING ACTIVITIES: Practical work in an extended range of theatre skills; voice, movement, character development, script writing, plus group and paired performance. Script interpretation and live theatre analysis.

Development of performance ability is relevant to situations that require presentation skills. The ability to communicate clear intentions to an audience is advantageous, in a range of professions. Self-discipline, focus, confidence, collaboration and team work are qualities valued by both employers and tertiary providers. Learning in Drama compliments learning in: languages, visual arts, social sciences, health and physical education, technology and media studies. 

Careers associated with the skills developed through creating theatre and performance work include; film and theatre acting, television and radio broadcasting, script writing, directing, film making, teaching, law, event management, journalism, community and youth social work.



Recommended Prior Learning

NCEA Level 1 and / or Level 2 Drama credits are useful but not essential. Experience in performance through the school production or related community theatre involvement would be an advantage. Students may seek entry permission from the HOD Ms. Allpress, if they are interested but in doubt about their former experience level. Students will need to be able to perform in front of an audience.

As there is a significant amount of group work involved in this course, a good attendance record is recommended as a prerequisite for entry.
