Drama is a popular subject at Mill Hill that is taken by many students both at GCSE and A Level (ninety-five have been examined this year). The department has two specialist teachers, a drama studio and a theatre. It is rare for a production not to be in rehearsal, though with so many students taking the subject, many of the shows are part of the exam system.
A House Arts Festival also takes place every year and this is taken very seriously by a large number of student actors and directors who are not necessarily studying drama. In recent years we have performed our self-written musical ‘Never Had It So Good’ at the Artsdepot Theatre in North Finchley and we have taken shows to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe where we have performed at The Pleasance and other venues. Recent productions include ‘Kvetch’, ‘The Luck of the Bodkins’, ‘Orphans’, ‘Cabaret’ and ‘Oh What a Lovely War’.
The film below shows examples of work done at all levels in the Drama Department.
