Drama

Our Drama programme in Years 7-10 provides a sound background to developing both the practical and theoretical skills and knowledge required to participate in Drama Courses available to Years 11 and 12 students.

Students are given the opportunity to create and perform their own productions using the skills learned in class.  Our programmes are designed to enhance performance ability and provide opportunities to develop design, technical and backstage skills and knowledge through annual productions or performance nights.  Students will engage in a range of drama activities including mime, melodrama, musical theatre, monologues, self-devised and scripted performances and will gain an understanding of theatre history and significant developments in the world of drama.

Students learn to express themselves and learn the craft of acting in a fun and friendly environment.  Team discipline, respect for others, confidence, awareness of body language and developing one’s own ideas are just some of the basic life skills incorporated in this area of study.

In Years 11 and 12 students are able to explore important ideas and issues about themselves, their cultural identity and that of others.  Students use a wide range of drama-based artistic processes such as improvisation, text interpretation and playwriting to create original works and drama presentations based on a variety of texts.

All students are encouraged to make the most of the co-curricular drama opportunities that the College has to offer in order to further develop the skills they have learned in class and perform for a public audience.  Such activities include drama performance evenings, Musical Productions, Catholic Performing Arts Festival and various talent quests and competitions that arise each year.
