A level Courses in Drama

A level (AS) in Drama

Paphos Youth Theatre is now able to offer AS Drama as most of the work is of a practical nature. The course is divided into two units.

Unit 1 (40% of the course) requires students to explore two contrasting play texts in a practical way.

Unit 2 (60% of the overall course) requires students to demonstrate their acting skills whilst contributing to a performance of a professionally published play by a known writer.

AS Drama is a one year course. In order to successfully complete the AS in Drama, students must be prepared to undertake 3 hours of drama per week with additional rehearsal times.

Edexcel AS Drama Study Guide

The Aims of the AS in Drama are to:

  • Build on the students’ existing knowledge
  • Develop the students’ imaginative skills to think beyond their immediate experience
  • Develop research skills through observation, exploring both the students’ own memories and aspects of academic research
  • Enhance the students’ vocal ability through experimenting with their voice
  • Explore Movement as a medium of drama
  • Enable students to take-part in character development
  • Evaluate practically explored work.

The cost of the AS Drama course is €160 per month. In addition there will be an assessed workshop during the course. The price of this workshop is €60. Students’ written portfolios will be assessed and moderated. Students will be expected to purchase relevant course books and a list of these will be given prior to starting the course.

The A2 Drama and Theatre studies will further develop skills gained in AS. The course is split up into 2 units (unit 3 and unit 4)

Unit 3. In unit 3 students will prepare an original piece of theatre based on a stimulus provided by the teacher.
