Kuwait English School develops citizenship by the integration of the 17 UN Sustainable Goals through the medium of Drama, celebrating the diversity and individual talents of each of our students.
Drama is a medium which empowers the presenter and offers a unique solution to a dramatic challenge through teamwork and inclusion. Every piece of theatre, a performance to share with an audience, addresses a message through educating, enlightening and entertaining. It is a training in self discipline, presentation and leadership skills. It involves observation, evaluation, problem solving, dialogue, teamwork, organisation skills and personal presentation.
THE DRAMA CURRICULUM
Drama at Kuwait English School is a very important part of the curriculum. To prepare all students for presentations in all walks of life we deliver it to every student throughout the school up until Year 9. Thereafter it is offered as an external exam subject at both IGCSE level and GCE AS and A level.
THE CULTURAL SEASON
The Senior Drama department is proud to be a driving force behind Kuwait English School’s CULTURAL SEASON and our Four Festivals through presentation and performance.
In addition to the curriculum, the Junior and Senior Departments put on productions which involve a fusion of our outstanding Arts departments.
Past Senior School productions include:
The Mikado, Moliere’s Tartuffe, Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, The Sound of Music, Sweeney Todd, 39 Steps, The Steel Magnolias, Antigone, Oedipus, Grease, Batman, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Piper, Great Expectations to name but a few of our popular Senior productions.
Past Junior School Productions include: Alice in Wonderland, The Lion King, The Snow Queen, Ali Baba the musical, Robin Hood and a variety of different musicals and ensemble performances…
Being a member of the Production Team of a School Production is considered to be an important part of school life whether on stage or backstage.
