Heya, A-Level Drama student here:

I think I get what you mean.

Style- think practitioner e.g. Frantic Assembly.

Theme- Think about what the production is based around e.g Relationships, Feminsm or Bullying.

Genre- Like film genre- Horror, Comedy or Sci-Fi.

I hope this helps

Stanisvlaski isn't a style but Naturalism which he influenced is. thinking back Frantic Assembly was probably a bad example

It's not a problem at all. Usually, a style is what a practitioner will have had some influence over or there works will be based in that style such as Stanisvlaski and Naturalism, or The Curious Incident of The Dog In The Night Time based on the style of Frantic Assembly.
