Theatre & Drama
Bromsgrove has produced household names for the dramatic world, and all the evidence suggests this will continue. Drama is a passion here. It can give a young person confidence in a way no other activity can, and the third spear carrier may have a life changing experience on stage to the same extent as a Hamlet or Eliza Doolittle. We are not about tantrums, luvvies and spoilt little princesses: but we are about opening doors to new friendships, wonder and delight.
From Sophocles to Stoppard, "Macbeth" to "My Fair Lady" and "Cats" to "School for Scandal" the greatest plays and musicals are staged in studios and our own 300-seat theatre. As ever, we believe inclusivity is perfectly compatible with excellence provided pupils give of their best at an appropriate level. Every pupil has the opportunity to perform, understanding that a paying audience is not there to witness self indulgence: discipline and rigour play their part.
Few experiences take young people out of comfort zones and into the exciting, shifting terrains as powerfully as Drama.
