DRAMA AT KING GEORGE V COLLEGE
Over the two years of the course, you will study two set texts and get the chance to make several theatre trips to experience professional performances. For your practical exams, you will work in a small group to create three pieces of theatre based on selected texts, influenced by a theatre practitioner; you will perform one of these for your exam. You will also produce a piece of devised drama in a small group again for the second part of your practical exam. As you make decisions about your future, expert staff will be on hand to advise you and to help you prepare your audition pieces for drama school or university. Former students have gone on to study, drama, musical theatre and theatre studies and have taken up careers in performing, directing and theatre administration.
5 GCSEs at grades 9-5 (A*-B) including English Language and a 4 or above (Grade C) in GCSE Maths.
As part of your course, you will make several trips to see professionally produced theatre. You will also take part in tours and workshops given by our local providers such as LIPA and Edge Hill University.
