Drama Personal Statement

The stage is a very intoxicating mixture to me, the bright lights, the new character and a audience to amaze, all these parts of drama even as a little girl I found exciting. I would go to theatre's and see play's and just dream of being apart of that some day, Drama inspired me to succeed in my education and has been a passion of mine for many years. What draws me so strongly, to drama is that it has always been a liberating experience for me. I adore the idea of being apart of something bursting with charisma and enthusiasm. I feel that the theatrical experiences that I have had, have been a gift. I would love to explore the chance to gain more knowledge about the subject and to gain more personal experience and skill in this area.

Whilst studying drama I have acted many character's and been amazed by the camouflage, an actor undertakes to bring to life a character. I was 'Winnie' in 'Female Transport,' This character was an upbeat, overly chatty woman but 'Winnie' was enjoyable character to act, where as I was cast as Andormache in 'Trojan Woman' there is great deal of emotion that Andormache experiences, It was a great opportunity to act a character who dealt with such raw emotion, which helped provide a contrast of characters.

I also have experience in backstage work; I helped lighting, props and makeup. My favourite set I worked on was Westside story at Dean close, there always a lot to do and I really enjoyed the experience of a different side to theatre. Drama helped uncover so many hidden aspects of myself but what drama gave me were the skills to analyse a play but it showed me the importance of teamwork, and because I am apart of the schools Hockey team, I am a good leader prefer but I prefer being apart of a team of equals. I am also learning business studies which I thought would help me understand the financial part of the theatre industry, it has helped me to get to grips with how I would manage a production team. I was apart the young enterprise team at my school which gave me further experience of how to manage finace in an actual company setting. Our business was very successful and went to the south west finals.

As well I study psychology; I enjoy psychology because I am fascinated with human behaviour. But psychology has been very useful for my drama helping to understand certain aspects of the human mind giving me an advantage in being able to analysis characters and their desires. Psychology helped me often when trying to get to the bottom of how a character experiencing such emotions and it gave me the idea of how that character might act.

In my spare time, I spent a lot of time with young children; due to my family having close relation with many young children, as well as babysitting children in my neighbourhood. I like doing this because I think it I helped me gain many skills, like patience and it helped me understand children and how they grow. I love to sing and enjoy many things like walking that is how I earned my Duke of Edinburgh bronze award.

Before going to university I am taking a gap year, in my GAP the year ill be participating within a course that helps me get to grips with directing and acting as a career learning from experienced thespians, I think it will help me understand the industry as whole and it will make me more determined to follow acting as a career. After my drama degree, I aim to be accepted at a drama school, to help perfect my acting, so I can therefore go forward and act having a large amount of experience and understanding of theatre. I think the combination of the experiences; will give me an edge over other actors due to the large amount of understanding I will gain.

I look forward to the drama course as a new challenge and I am determined to excel.

Please look at the word

Please look at the word 'apart'. It is mostly needed as 2 words, not one. You also need to look at your grammar. It is a good statement, but you need to refine it a little more to get the best results. Focus on your other skills as well as experiences. A well rounded person is more likely to succeed ...
Good Luck

I really like this personal statement it seems very honest, genuine and its straight to the point.I liked it because i think it reflects your personality well without you seeming to show off. :)

It has helped me a great deal in writing mine aswell, so thankyou...

Oh and by the way, some comments left by some people are just plain nasty and rude!

saying that ' I would never let you into my university' is just mean and extremely ridiculous, if you have any level of inteligence you will be able to relaise that this is a well written personal statment,and in future leave you awful comments to yourself! (id really love to see your personal statements by the way, to see how they comapare)

Anyways, I really liked this personal statement and i hope you get everything you want from drama and university :)

Peace and love
