Drama

The Drama Department is extremely busy with a co-curricular programme of clubs and activities.

Whole School productions are a highlight of the school calendar. Our own playwright-in-residence, Grant Corr, writes bespoke plays for the girls at Blackheath High. We also take a Musical production to Greenwich Theatre every year.

There are weekly drama clubs for Years 7, 8 and 9 as well as the National Theatre New Views Playwriting course.

Alongside full-scale whole school performances there is an “Evening of Drama” provided by The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art exam candidates and an Inter-House Drama Competition, “The Gadesden”. These two events are non-audition based to ensure that every student who wishes to, has an opportunity to take part in perfomances.

We have our own in-house Technical Crew. This is open to students from Year 10 upwards who wish to participate in Backstage work including, Stage Management, Costume, Set, Make-Up, Light and Sound Design. As well as having a more intimate Studio space, we also have our own “state-of-the-art” theatre with computerised lighting and a sound box. 

There is a school “Culture Club” who visit West End productions twice a year. The Drama Department also organises a biannual foreign tour together with the Music Department. In 2017, the Drama Department will be performing scenes from Romeo and Juliet in Venice.
