Drama Level 3

DRA301
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Matua Paora-Quirk

Drama 301

Drama at Level 3 is focused on students developing critical analysis skills to interpret meaning from the texts they study. Students will be expected to learn concepts from drama theorists to develop their ideas and devise their work. They will also be expected to show greater perception in their performance work and in their response to theatre that they see. Students who have a career interest in lighting, sound, costume or stage makeup may be able to undertake specific standards at the HOD Drama’s discretion. 



Students must have ‘Performance Blacks’ – black t-shirt and pants to be worn for assessment pieces.
