Abstract
Dramaturgy is one of the unique shapes of education that Indonesian students could have in learning English. The purpose of this study is to investigate the differences of English ability between two classes of second grade in private senior high school in Depok, West Java by using dramaturgy in teaching English. The research involved 52 pupils in experiment class and 54 pupils in control class. The experiment class used the dramaturgy in teaching English, while the control class did not use it. In the beginning of the study they were given preliminary English test and by the end of the year they were given the final English test. All statistical analyses were conducted using STATA 14 statistical software. The result of the study showed that the mean English test score of the experiment class was significantly higher than that of the control class (p = 0.00). It is concluded that dramaturgical practices are useful to aid the students to study English.
