At DBIS, we are proud of the drama opportunities available to our students.
Drama clubs run weekly for both our Key Stage 3 and 4 students, providing them with the opportunity to build confidence, learn skills and have fun in a safe, welcoming environment. Students make full use out of our specialist Blackbox theatre facility, including its flexible staging, LED lighting and sound equipment. An annual Drama Showcase evening gives students the opportunity to present performance work that they have developed independently as part of these clubs.
Each year, our drama department stages an annual production which is open to all students from Years 7 - 10, and is always a highlight of our school calendar. Past productions of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, ‘The Crucible’ and ‘The Brothers Grimm Spectaculathon’ have been thoroughly enjoyed by our school community and have truly showcased our students’ dramatic talents. In addition, we offer our Drama students regular opportunities to attend ISTA Theatre festivals both in Hong Kong and abroad.
