Advanced Level Drama and Theatre Studies

Advanced Level Drama and Theatre Studies @ Alec Reed Academy

A-level Drama and Theatre Studies helps students to pursue their interests and skills in a range of practical drama elements including:

acting

directing

costume

setting

mask and technical design.

At AS students perform an extract from any play to illustrate their understanding of an influential director, designer, theatre company or other practitioner. At A2, candidates devise Drama on any topic to be performed in a theatrical style of their choice.

The content of this A-level specification follows through from the AQA GCSE Drama specification enabling a smooth transition. However, the GCSE is not a requirement for students who want to take the A-level course.

This specification also enables students to gain an entry qualification for courses in higher education in Drama and Theatre Studies and other subjects
