Prince William School

Drama

All the world's a stage, and the men and women merely players; they have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts…

William Shakespeare.

Drama is a valued subject at Prince William School playing a significant part in the development of The Five Cs which are a skillset each student can take with them through all walks of life:

  • Creativity
  • Confidence
  • Cooperation
  • Coordination

Students are given the opportunity to work on whole class, group and individual performances. A variety of scripts are studied using a range of dramatic skills and conventions, which enable them to create effective theatre. Students will learn to devise coherent narrative, sustain believable character and understand typical conventions of various genres for example; Realism and Naturalism, Expressionism, Absurdism and Musical Theatre.

Students will have the opportunity to see live performances which will enhance their understanding for the theatre and the application of acting/design and directing skills.

  • Some of the most recent trips our drama students have had the opportunity to attend:
  • Miss Saigon, London.
  • Wicked The Musical,  London
  • Frankenstein, The Stahl Theatre

Students will also have the chance to be involved in various drama workshops. Last year, we had an amazing opportunity to work with Frantic Assembly, a world renowned physical theatre company.

Students will have the opportunity to be involved in the UK Rock Challenge, a competition that involves schools from all over the UK.

Students can also get involved in school productions/musicals where they will have the opportunity to be a performer or part of the technical team.
