Drama is offered
as an option in school at the Grade 7, 8, 9 and all High School levels. In
classes we explore the concepts surrounding self and performance and work to
build knowledge and appreciation of Drama, performance and theatre as
an art form. Our courses are broken down into units of Orientation, Movement,
Speech, Acting and Improvisation, Technical Theatre and Theatre Studies. We will also have the opportunity to visit live theatre performances.
Drama Club is an
extra-curricular activity which provides all students from grades seven to twelve an opportunity to audition and perform, regardless of whether they are enrolled in Drama classes
or not. Performances are usually in the spring and details are provided throughout the school year.
Students who wish to participate in Drama Club, but do not wish to be on stage
also have the opportunity to help out with lights, sound, props or other
technical aspects of the production.
