Drama & Theatre: An introduction: Topics

List of Topics in Drama

Students taking Drama in the High School move through either the GCSE or FIB stream to IB Diploma Theatre. Both Upper School courses (GCSE and FIB) encourage students to develop knowledge and skills in:

·    Devising and ensemble work
·    Script interpretation
·    Stagecraft design and application
·    Theatre styles and history
·    Analysis of student and professional theatre

These are then extended in IB Theatre, when students’ study focuses on three main areas:
