For those teaching VCE Units 3 & 4 Drama and Theatre Studies this year, the 2011 Drama solo performance examination and Theatre Studies monologue performance examination have just been published by the VCAA.
A couple of key changes to the Drama solo performance exam structures this year include only one prescribed dramatic element and one prescribed theatrical convention, instead of the usual two. Also, there are only nine solo performance exam structures, instead of ten.
Any favourites out there among readers of The Drama Teacher? I’m a fan of The Household Appliance solo, myself. It’s a great selection of character structures for Drama this year.
