A level pupils show their skills in Drama performance

Posted In Creative, Drama

On Thursday 26th April, the Year 12 A level Drama pupils performed their two devised pieces in the Drama Studio. The evening was an opportunity for the Sixth form to showcase their exceptional knowledge and understanding of Drama through two pieces of theatre created by themselves.

The class were given two scripts from theatre practitioners Brecht and Berkoff and, over a period of six weeks, developed two pieces that highlighted the narrative and themes that most interested them as a class. Although this was an examination, the Drama Studio opened its doors to parents, staff and senior pupils who were able to enjoy an evening of contemporary drama.

Director of Performing Arts and Head of Drama, Alex Bolton, said: “It was a great evening for our Year 12 Drama pupils; they performed at their best and provided some challenging pieces that demonstrated an understanding of physicality, character and how to communicate key messages to an audience.”
