Theatre is a practical subject that encourages discovery through experimentation, the taking of risks and the presentation of ideas to others. It results in the development of both theatre and life skills; the building of confidence, creativity and working collaboratively. It gives students the opportunity to make theatre as creators, designers, directors and performers. It emphasizes the importance of working both individually and collaboratively as part of an ensemble. It offers the opportunity to engage actively in the creative process, transforming ideas into action as inquisitive and productive artists.

01 IB Theatre Course
IB organization believes that students’ learning to apply research and theory to inform and to contextualize their theatre work encourages them to appreciate that through the processes of researching, creating, preparing, presenting and critically reflecting. In Boston International School, we offer Theatre course from P4.
In P4 and P5, the course is strongly related to Units of Inquiry. Students are supposed to rehearse for a 10-min play in the end of the semester. While for students from G6, their task being heavier as they are required to learn plot analysis theory, read classic scripts intensively, analyze the genre, do characterization, etc.
