|Drama awards are only offered to pupils showing outstanding talent and ability. Students who can provide evidence of experience and a sustained interest in drama will obviously be at an advantage. For instance candidates will typically have had a main role in at least two recent drama productions.|
Successful candidates will be expected to make significant contributions to Denstone drama throughout their College career. There will be auditions in three sections: the Prepared Piece, which is a short extract from any piece of drama that the candidate has prepared and learned, Acting from a Script where candidates will be given a few lines of text to perform and Spontaneous Improvisation, where candidates will be asked to create a range of characters in a given set of circumstances. We believe that young people must be relaxed to show their true potential, so auditions will be conducted on a one-to-one basis.
