In drama we play a lot of games. Aside from having fun, we also put these games into a context, exploring WHY we play games and WHAT makes the game dramatically interesting to an audience. Why is it significant to the story or relevant to the character? The building blocks of drama, learning the rules of the game, putting the game into context, re-interpreting the game with new character thoughts and intentions helps us to practice real-life situations, explore moments in history, develop empathy with others and increase confidence as we practice communication skills.

 

We also have fun with masks, weapons, costumes and over-sized props.
