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.

Honk! Jr

Tartuffe

The Happy Prince

Tickets are now on sale for the Year 7 Play The Happy Prince.

This play is a beautifully lyrical and faithful adaptation of Oscar Wilde's classic fairy tale. The spiritually compelling play tells the story of a migrating swallow who befriends a prince made of stone.  The prince, once a selfish human being, has been transformed into a statue bedecked with dazzling jewels and placed high above a squalid city. Together, the bird and the prince both learn the lessons of friendship and sacrifice. A chorus of townspeople help tell this heartfelt morality tale that teaches young audiences the true meaning of charity, social responsibility and self-sacrifice.

An enthusiastic cast of Year 7 students from St Kevin’s and Sacré Cœur have been rehearsing The Happy Prince since early Term 3. The charming characters and family friendly story are suitable for audience members of all ages.

Bookings are now open.
