The Senior & Junior Drama Ensembles are formed each year to provide additional performance opportunities for gifted and talented drama students.
One of the key roles of the drama co-curricular groups is to offer students real experiences of the collaboration and the vital work that ensembles and teams perform to realise a successful production.
Year 7 and 8: Drama Ensemble
Basic skills development, transformational acting and short script work. The design of the year 7 and 8 extra-curricular group is based on the concept of transformational acting. It challenges students to think imaginatively about how they can create new worlds, characters and mood without relying on overly complex setting, props or costumes. The students will work with short scripts and script excerpts and will learn how to bring those scripts to life by transforming themselves and their space into the characters and worlds of the play.
Year 9 – 11: Theatresports
This course is designed to teach students the necessary skills and knowledge to be involved in this world-wide theatre practice. The students will focus on developing improvisation skills which help develop creative problem solving and spontaneity. They will learn a variety of Theatresports games that they will participate in and have the opportunity to compete against each other in a supportive environment. From this group, students have the opportunity to be selected for representative teams that will compete in external Theatresports competitions.
Senior Drama Production
Year 11 drama students are involved in the development and performance of a full-scale drama production. Opportunities are available for students to direct, perform or work on a production team and provides the opportunity for these students to have the real-world experience of producing a play. At times this opportunity may be opened up to Year 10 students.
