IB Higher Level 1 Theatre


In this IB Theatre course, students will gain extensive experience in directing, playwriting, acting theory and technique, and production design. Students will be encouraged to develop the organizational and technical skills needed to express themselves creatively both individually and as a member of an ensemble. They will also be encouraged to understand alternative views and to respect and appreciate cultural diversity through theatre. Students will work to gain a clarity of understanding, critical thinking, reflective analysis, effective involvement and imaginative synthesis – all of which should be achieved through practical engagement in theatre.
Students also have the option to test in HL1 or HL2 Theatre for the IB Diploma.

Grades 11, 12 
Prerequisite(s): None, though successful completion of Performance Theatre I or II or other theatre experience is strongly encouraged
