In Level 1 Drama, students will interpret scripted drama and devise their own pieces for performance. Students view and reflect on the effectiveness of live theatre, and adapt the conventions of a specific theatre form to their own stagecraft. They will be introduced to theatre practitioners such as Cecily Berry and theatre styles such as Commedia Dell ‘Arte.
