Words of wisdom from the HOD
The Drama Department has a long tradition of graduating actors, theatre-makers, teachers and community theatre practitioners. The Department offers both undergraduate and post graduate degrees in theatre making and performance. All courses offered combine a stimulating range of practical and theoretical studies, which include acting, voice, movement, theatre-making, stagecraft, production, directing and theory options such as literature and film studies, performance studies, history of art, gender studies and classics.
The Department of Drama, together with its resource Unit, the Little Theatre is located on the Hiddingh Campus of the University, in the heart of Cape Town's 'cultural precinct', and near the loci of the film and television industry.
Drama has beautiful premises on the Hiddingh Campus, a well-stocked library, and access to the Little Theatre (245 seats), the Arena Theatre (80 seats), the Intimate Theatre ( 50 seats) and other flexible performance spaces in the Hiddingh Hall, Playroom and Rehearsal Studio.
