This course is a mix of practical drama and dramatic theory. You will be introduced to texts from a wide range of genres, styles and historical contexts. Workshops will also introduce a range of theatre practitioners to develop theatrical knowledge and skills. The course will consist of practical workshops and theory-based lessons linked to these to ensure an in-depth understanding. You will be given the opportunity to work in different styles of theatre so that by the end of the course you will have an extensive skills base and an understanding of the theory behind it.
You will be encouraged to be creative and experimental and to get as much experience of drama outside the classroom as possible.
