Drama surrounds us in everyday life, through film, advertising, that burst of imagination when reading a book or script and it is essential that we provide students with a toolkit for understanding and experiencing drama on a deeper level. Through drama, students develop teamwork skills, vocal skills, an understanding of real-world issues and about themselves.
