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

Silver's Secret

Tickets are now on sale for the Year 7 Play Silver’s Secret.

This comical pirate play is a treasure chest full of silliness with cheerleader mermaids, ghosts, smugglers, and lobsters as comic stagehands.  

As the famous pirate Long John Silver lies on his deathbed, he sends for his sons, Red Beard and Black Beard, and his daughter, No Beard.  Alas, his offspring didn’t inherit their father’s pirating skills!  Luckily, each bumbling pirate has a “smee” as an assistant, because their father sends them off to find the three keys to the treasure chest that holds his life’s treasure. 

The children and their respective smees dash off to adventures, for whoever finds the keys first will inherit the treasure. Silver’s Secret is sure to be a swashbuckling good time for everyone.

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

 

Bookings are now open.

Romeo and Juliet

Tickets are now on sale for the Year 9 Play Romeo and Juliet.

Shakespeare all-time classic play Romeo and Juliet will be at Waterford in the final week of this term. The time-honoured story really needs no introduction, with the star crossed lovers from opposing families well known to all.

In a new arrangement for 2019, the cast of the Year 9 Play will include girls form Siena College, Camberwell. The large cast of male and female students has been rehearsing since the final weeks of Term Two.

As well as being a romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet also features swashbuckling action, with the reckless street combat resulting in fatal consequences. This production is a shorter adaptation of the full-length classic play. The updated setting and use of narration will make the play accessible for all audience members.
