This course offers two public performance assessments,including a class production. There is also the option of directing theatre.
Students will attend at least three live theatre performances during the year. There is an out of class rehearsal commitment required as part of this course.
It is expected that students will develop skills in all areas but will complete between 8 and 14 credits for assessment. Not all skills taught will be assessed. This is a UE approved subject. You will need to ensure you have 14 Drama credits over Semester A and B for UE Drama.


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Students are expected to attend live performance for materials and ideas to use in both their external and internal work.


Recommended Prior Learning

A minimum of 14 Level 2 Drama credits preferred.
Due to the group nature of all of the internal standards in this course, students who have a poor attendance record or choose to take a subject that requires major learning off campus may find it difficult to complete all group performance assessments.
