The study of dramatic arts provides student with an opportunity to take on roles, to create and enter into imagined worlds, to learn about the art of drama, and the world around them.

The expectations are organized in three distinct but related strands:

Theory: The theory strand focuses on form and meaning in drama, and on theoretical aspects of the creative process.

Creation: Creative work consists of creating and presenting drama, and experiencing the roles of performer, audience, play write, producer, technician, and designer.

Analysis: Analysis involves responding to the creation and presentation of drama through on-going reflection, deconstruction, and evaluation.
