We strive to engender an appreciation for the Arts that will enrich our student’s lives for years beyond the classroom. The Drama Department enjoy an enviable reputation for their highly professional and entertaining productions. We provide a wide range of mediums for exploration, social criticism and celebration that enable students to define and shape their own identity. They participate in aesthetic learning in which the senses and emotions are engaged cognitively and effectively. By blending intellectual and emotional experiences, students are offered a unique means of inquiry that contributes to their own confidence, creativity, imagination and communication skills.

Active participation within the Arts is strongly encouraged and supported at the College. The collaborative nature of Drama allows students with opportunities to learn to manage interpersonal skills while fostering commitment, initiative, teamwork and cooperation. Students have access to both performance and stagecraft skills as part of the co-curricular program. Each student’s creative ability is stimulated and nurtured by activities that can include acting, direction, dramaturgy, stage management, set design, costume, lighting, properties, make-up and sound.

Upcoming Productions

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

Tickets are now on sale for the Years 10-12 SKC/Loreto Musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

The brassy musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is from the Golden Age of Broadway and is written by Frank Loesser and Abe Burrows, who also wrote Guys and Dolls. How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying won seven 1962 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, also winning the 1962 Pulitzer Prize.

Armed with a helpful guide book, eager young window washer Finch makes his way briskly up the ranks of the World Wide Wicket company. The musical is a lively satire of big business in the 1960s, poking fun at gender stereotypes, office politics, workplace romances and coffee addiction.

The large cast of St Kevin’s and Loreto students has been working throughout Terms 2 and 3 to learn and perfect their roles in this very amusing show. Combined with the talents of the orchestra, the full-scale musical is set to be as melodious as it is funny, making for a highly entertaining piece of theatre. 

Performances for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying will be held at St Kevin’s Heyington campus in Toorak. Please note that although the content of the show is suitable for all ages, the 2.5 hour running time means that the performance will not be suitable for young children.

Bookings are now open.
