The Drama department is a vibrant and dynamic department. We have regular visits from Drama companies and workshops. We attend local theatres where our students have seen productions and attended workshops. We have combined live action and film footage in our productions of ‘The Hobbit’, ‘The Time Machine, and, more recently St Trinian’s’. Past productions have included; High School Musical; Cabaret, A Christmas Carol, Wyrd Sisters; Carpe Jugulum, Annie; Oliver, My Fair Lady; Alice in Wonderland, Bugsy Malone and Grease.
Our Drama studio – The Cave – is a large, technically well -equipped acting space with flexible staging, advanced sound system and excellent lighting. The School Theatre is also a well-equipped venue, with a full lighting rig, including state-of-the-art LED lanterns and a new DJ lighting system. Students now are encouraged to enter exams as either performance or technician under the new specification.
The Drama Department has an extensive range of costumes. Ancient Greek, Roman, Elizabethan, Victorian and modern outfits are well represented, as well as numerous accessories. We’ve even got a suit of Civil War armour!
Our belief is that anyone can be trained to act and everyone has something unique to offer as a performer.
Come and join the fun.
