Drama

John Curtin’s leading drama program provides your child with opportunities to develop high level dramatic skills alongside other gifted arts students.

Your child is given the opportunity to develop reading, writing, listening, speaking, and performance skills, as well as foundations for interpreting, reflecting and analysing creative modes of expression.

The lower school program is a unique course that focuses on students practically exploring drama conventions, developing academic understanding and workshopping practical skills in order to provide learning experiences in drama that other schools in the State cannot offer. In upper school we offer courses to suit varied pathways.

Your child will broaden their knowledge and appreciation of drama as an art form, profession and life skill. Students are provided with opportunities to work with industry artists including professional actors and directors to explore scripted drama and develop specialist skills. Performance is a key component of the program and your child will have the opportunity to perform in front of a range of audiences in a variety of theatre spaces.
