Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs J. Grubb

Recommended Prior Learning

HOD Approval is required as well as availability for performances and dress rehearsal.

This course will provide students with the opportunity to put together a significant production in a variety of roles. In the first half of the year they will choose a role in which capacity they will be a part of the teacher directed major musical production choosing from the following; acting, lighting operation and design, set design, costume design and creation, make up design and application, props, stage management and front of house management. Students will then have the opportunity to create and facilitate their own smaller scale performance in the second half of the course, again choosing which of the areas listed above that they would like to explore - with the addition of script writing and directing.

The course is assessed by a mixture of Achievement Standards and Unit Standards. The standards are listed below. Students will not be able to attempt and gain all the credits listed. It is advised that they attempt a maximum total number of 25 credits.

If a student achieves 14 credits from the Achievement Standards, this course can count as an approved subject for University Entrance. However, if a student chooses both Production 31F and Drama 31F the credits gained in both subjects will count towards ONE approved subject only, NOT two separate subjects. Please see Careers staff for further clarity.

All students enrolled in the course and wishing to undertake the acting component, although guaranteed inclusion in the course, must still audition to determine their role in the show.
