Subject content

Our AS Drama and Theatre offers students the opportunity to explore drama as a practical art form in which ideas and meaning are communicated to an audience through choices of form, style and convention.

Students will:
  • create, perform and respond to drama and theatre
  • explore the relationship between theory and practice
  • develop the creativity and independence to become effective theatre makers.

The subject content details the knowledge, understanding and skills that students are expected to develop throughout the course of study.

The subject content for AS Drama and Theatre is divided into two components:
  1. Interpreting drama
  2. Process and performance

For the practical component students choose to work as performers, designers (design students may choose lighting, sound, set, costume or puppets) or directors.
