Drama is a part of the College’s Expressive Faculty. We have a spacious purpose built studio complete with a dedicated control area and full lighting rig. The studio is fairly flexible in terms of audience seating of up to fifty persons.
Alongside is a seminar/ office/ kitchen area known as the drama lounge. There is scenery storage in another part of the site.
The space has a wiring loom that enables up to 24 microphone/audio inputs and similar video tie-lines.
The department has a Zero88 Fat Frog DMX lighting board and an Alan and Heath sound mixing board. The faculty has access to full sound equipment for stage use. A professional comms system is fitted.
Some lessons take place in a large space known as The Old Hall. This is equipped with lighting but is transformed for major productions by opening up access to the Gymnasium which becomes a stunning stage area.
