Students at CIS take Drama right from Pre-Kindergarten and can continue all the way through if they choose Theatre for their Diploma Programme.
International Schools Theatre Association
CIS is a proud member of ISTA. The school normally attends four festival each year: Separate festivals for Primary, Middle and High School, as well as a Theatre arts symposium dedicated to students in the Diploma Theatre course.
The three Cs! That's what Drama at CIS is all about!
Communication- We find as many ways as we can to convey meaning, opinion and ideas.
Creativity- We develop our imaginative skills and appreciate the thoughts and presentations of others.
Cooperation- We have lots of opportunities to share, negotiate and collaborate in large or small groups.
Drama is part of the overall arts programme at CIS and along with Music and Art, it drives the "How We Express Ourselves" units at each grade level. Drama is also used to support many of the other units of inquiry as well as following its own spiraling curriculum, which covers Creative Exploration and Expression, Technical Incorporation, Performance, Personal and Social Development. Reflection, Evaluation and Appreciation as well as Drama in Society.
The Middle School's latest production was Alice in Wonderland
