Year 9 Theatre Design Project

“What does a Theatre Designer do?”

This has been the focus for all our Year 9 students this term.

During the process of our theatre design project, they have had the opportunity to experience theatre behind the scenes and have explored life as a Lighting, Set, Sound/ Music, Prop, Costume, and Hair and Makeup Designer.

Using the play text ‘DNA’ students worked as a creative team in groups.

They created mood boards of their ideas and then had the opportunity to pitch their ideas as designers in a presentation. Models of their Set Design also accompanied their pitch, allowing the Director to visually see their ideas. Each group then had the opportunity to bring their designs to life in the Drama space and perform an extract from the play text ‘DNA’.

This was an ambitious project which all Year 9 students enjoyed and excelled in.
