9DRA - Year 9 Drama
Stand by me
In Year 9 you will draw upon the foundations laid in Year 7 and 8 Performance.
We explore in more depth how to create effective characters and make interesting original performances. We look at how costume, lighting. props and set help to make work more exciting. By working with others in small and large groups you get to develop lots of skills in being more confident and able to speak in front of others. Making mistakes is encouraged as it means you are putting your whole self into the work. Often the best work happens by accident!
