Stage-in-a-Box

27 oktober 2017

This week Santa came yearly and the Y11 IGCSE Drama students were able to work together on set design and staging with the new “Stage-in-a-Box”.

“Stage-in-a-Box” is a model stage on a 1:12 scale with various components that can be easy added or removed, such as: flats, blocks, ramps, and steps as well as working spotlights and background projection. All have magnets and can be easily positioned and moved.

As they are preparing to perform on November 8th their IGCSE Exams comprised of 7 Monologues and 2 group pieces where all the set changes are performed by the students themselves; the work on the model stage proves very invaluable for a clear understanding of the furniture positions as well as who is responsible for what.

Also the Y13 IB Theatre students who are devising and collaborating on an original play called “The Tales of Maia” also to be performed during the Drama Evening, by working on the model will have a clear picture of their usage of the stage areas and props positioning.

Set Designing is an import skill that is being developed within Drama lessons from the Y7 through the KS3, 4 and 5 curricula.
