MBCTA Youth Theatre is a private provider for VCE Drama (14265) offering Units 3-4 for year 11 and 12 students who are not able to study the subject at school either because the school does not offer Drama or because of timetable clashes within the school.

Studying with us is exactly the same as studying at a secondary school as we follow the VCAA laid out VCE Drama Study Design.  In addition, results and reports are sent to the individual student’s home school for ATAR score calculation.

This class in 3 hours weekly and will count as one of your school subjects, meaning you either get a subject worth of spare periods or the opportunity to study an extra subject while at school.

The study of VCE Drama places emphasis on the development of the actors’ expressive skills within the dramatic framework.  It also focuses on the development and performance of imaginary characters.  This is achieved through the fine-tuning of processes, techniques, and skills in the creation and performance of ensemble and solo works.  Students gain an understanding in the use and application of non-naturalistic construction techniques and devices and the analysis of professional performances.

Students must undertake Unit 3 prior to the undertaking of Unit 4. Note that in 2022, we are not offering VCE Drama Units 1 and 2. 

Benefits of Studying VCE Drama at MBCTA

VCE Drama classes take place in MBCTA’s own theatre providing an intimate and inspiring environment.  Class sizes are small, with two teachers plus access to tutoring from past VCE Drama students who have achieved high scoring marks.  Small class sizes also help ensure individual students needs are adequately met.  This environment is conducive to the development of talent, skills, knowledge, and creativity, this is evident in the results achieved by previous students of MBCTA Youth Theatre

MBCTA Youth Theatre is a registered VCE Drama private provider, and Merilyn Brend, principal tutor, has extensive knowledge of theatre and its history.  In conjunction with her passion for the arts and devotion to students, ensure that anyone studying VCE Drama at MBCTA is provided within a nurturing and educational environment.
