Drama at Warwick School has exceptional range and is pursued with relish and conviction by large numbers of boys.
There are plenty of opportunities for pupils to take part, whatever their level of experience, on or off stage.
Productions and theatrical events are centred around the magnificent Bridge House Theatre. Plays are staged to a very high standard with professional quality performances the norm. Boys have many opportunities to take part in weekly workshops, perform or play a role within production support (backstage, technical or design). There are slots in the programme each year for the boys to direct and produce their own plays, managing budget and design as an independent company.
Warwick School runs a dance company – Altiora, in association with Motionhouse Dance Company providing a very high standard of expressive and dynamic movement which features in many of our productions.
Alongside masterclasses, residencies from companies such as Frantic Assembly, festival productions and individual casting opportunities, we aim to inspire the boys to enjoy as diverse and broad a range of experiences in drama as possible. We regularly host professional productions and touring shows in the theatre and have a busy programme of excursions each year. We have participated in national festivals and international tours and we are currently planning our next overseas theatre trip to New York for April 2017.
We provide an exceptional performance foundation for our boys, many of whom go from Warwick to professional training, academic courses and careers in the theatre, TV and creative arts industries.
