Students attend up to 10 pieces of live theatre a year. This includes a range of West End, major theatre companies and fringe theatre performances of both classic and contemporary work all around London. Live theatre forms the basis of everything taught in the classroom and is a living (albeit ephemeral) example of the theory taught in class. How can you cook if you have never been in a kitchen? The same theory applies to Drama – how can you make theatre if you don’t go to the theatre?
Students also participate in a range of workshops from companies and artists around London including The Bush Theatre, The Lyric Hammersmith, The Little Angel Theatre and Splendid Productions. Students also begin to attend opportunities tailored to their individual interests. In previous years students have attended Donmar by Design and participated in the National Youth Theatre summer holiday program as a costume designer.
