Drama

Drama at Newman offers challenges, opens the mind, and broadens horizons. Giving confidence, self-belief and the ability to work with others, whilst exploring some of the most important questions in society, this course encompasses far more than actor training; the modules give you a broad understanding of the art form as a whole, including many of the practical skills required in the theatre.

You will learn about the history of drama and theatre, how the various facets of theatre come together in a performance and an understanding of how drama can reflect and influence society.

We offer our drama students considerable experience in participating in Community and Applied Drama projects. Students get involved in the planning, development, execution and evaluation of performances, programmes and events to community groups in schools, hospitals, clinics, hospices, homes, arts centres and theatre venues. They learn new skills, they gain knowledge transfer experience and they network with host organisations and future employers. A rich collection of excellent partners such as Big Brum TiE company, NHS, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Educare adolescence services, schools from all sectors in the West Midlands, and professionals, drama therapists, psychologists and social workers of national and international reputation makes the student experience worth living it!
