Component 3 Theatre

Makers in Practice (Written exam based on a set text and a live performance).

This course is challenging and creative and allows students to develop skills in a number of different areas. Students will develop acting and performance skills as well as an overall understanding of the theatre. Students can choose different areas to develop their work in such as Performance, Lighting, Costume & Makeup, Set Design and Sound Design. Students will get the chance to take part in workshops delivered by professional actors and practitioners. This course requires a lot of commitment, hard work and self-discipline.

What can I do afterwards?

Students who take this course will be able to go on to study Drama at college such as A Level Drama and Theatre Studies. Drama also teaches you a number of other skills such as building confidence, improving group work, problem solving, time management and effective communication skills.
