The Drama Department is responsible for both academic Theatre Studies and all productions in the New Theatre and Drama Studio. Two Dons teach all academic classes and in addition there is a full time Technician and a full time Wardrobe Supervisor, who assist with the academic teaching. Theatre Studies is an option at both GCSE, with large numbers taking the subject on four periods per cycle, and at A Level numbers are up to twelve. Boys who take A Level Theatre Studies go on to study a broad selection of university courses, with a few continuing into the theatrical profession either direct from school or after university.
Many boys at Radley join the National Youth Theatre or National Youth Music Theatre during their time here.
The department oversees a range of theatrical productions each year: including the main College production, Shell Play, Remove Play, 6.1 Play and occasional Dons’, Drama Scholars’ and Social productions.
