drama and musical theatre

Each year our Middle and Senior Years students combine to stage a major drama production. The whole community looks forward to seeing our actors, singers and dancers performing on stage supported by our extremely talented musicians.

The professional quality of these productions accounts for our undeniable reputation for excellence in performing arts. Recent major productions include Seussical, Jekyll & Hyde Grease, Beauty & The Beast, Cabaret, Fame, West Side Story, The Wiz,  Guys and Dolls, Hairspray,  Into The Woods and most recently Legally Blonde The Musical. Middle and Senior Years students also have an opportunity to showcase their classwork in our excellent  R.T. Hille Performing Arts Centre.

Our major annual Senior Musical production, performed at the Frankston Arts Centre, is selected to stretch the performers and usually contains a cast in excess of 60 members. Supporting those on stage is a large crew, working behind the scenes honing their skills in the myriad of jobs required to present a professional production. The talents of students involved in set construction, costume design, production artwork, publicity, sound, lighting and staging never fail to impress the audience.

Our Middle Years Program offers an annual musical production for 70 cast members from Years 5-8. This extra-curricular activity provides more students with the tremendous opportunity to experience the joy and benefits of being a cast or crew member in a stage show and fully experience the Performing Arts. These productions are held in the Ansett Hall.

The Junior Years provides students from Prep to Year 4 the opportunity to perform at a professional venue in the annual Mini Musical Extravaganza. This all-inclusive performance comes out of their classroom drama and music exploration and provides them the platform to express themselves whilst building confidence on the big stage.

In our Early Childhood Centre, students also perform in an annual nativity play for their families. 

The Drama Department also:

    • Run a Year 8 monologue performance evening every semester, where the students write monologues about their life experiences.
    • Year 9 and 10 Drama and Theatre Students hold public performances each semester.
    • Every VCE Drama and Theatre Studies class puts on a performance, running over several nights, each year.
    • Every VCE Drama and Theatre Studies class also has the opportunity to attend several professional live performances each year.
    • Every second year, the drama department runs a 5 day tour to the Adelaide Fringe festival, which often encompasses up to 10 live performances.
