KICS Drama

T

The Drama productions are great fun and offer many opportunities for the students whether in acting or as stage crew. IB Diploma students are often involved to gain credit for their CAS portfolios and do something enjoyable and useful. The most recent production was 12 Angry Women, in addition to this KICS was also graced by the traveling theatre company Handlebards whose performance during two nights pulled the full audience. The theatre company worked with each drama class for a whole week providing valuable workshops to the students. Theatrical productions are always lively and well-attended. Students, staff, parents, and members of the wider community have all contributed to these productions helping to make them the successes they have been. Central to the ethos of Drama at KICS is the ensemble approach that values each student’s individual contribution and also provides all students with opportunities for growth and enrichment. We strive for professional excellence but recognise the production and performance processes as equally important. There is equal emphasis placed on Writing/Devising, Directing, Acting and Technical Theatre experience for our students.
