Drama


All students in Key Stage Three (British Section) and Middle School (American Section) at MES Cairo study Drama as a discrete subject. The two year course covers a wide range of Drama skills including physical theatre, script-writing, characterisation and explorative strategies. The course prepares interested students with the knowledge-base necessary for IGCSE Drama or the American High School Theatre courses. It also establishes the ability to work well with others, to view the world as others see it and develops self-confidence and presentation skills.
In the British Section students can move on to IGCSE Drama, a two-year course which further develops analytical skills and places a large emphasis on performance of both published scripts and devised work. Success at this level can then be taken on to AS Level Drama and Theatre Studies.
The American Section offers three levels of Theatre class with a definite focus on performance skills in the many and varied forms of Theatre. Students become aware of the history and development of the art-form and learn how theatre companies produce shows.
Many students in Drama or Theatre classes use their classroom experience to perform in the annual productions, including the hugely successful “Les Miserables” in 2013.
