Music, Drama and Performing Arts
see separate sections for Music and Drama, but some events and activities cross over both disciplines and so here are a few words about Performing Arts more generally…
Every other year (or so) we include a musical theatre production in our annual programme, and recent examples have included The Lion King and Alice. Students audition for all sorts of roles; acting, directing, choreographing, lighting, sound, hair/make-up or stage crew. The school musicals are extremely popular and a real highlight of the school year.
Shakespeare’s Birthday Parade
We are usually invited to contribute street theatre to the celebrations. Recently, Year 7 performed an abridged version of Romeo and Juliet.
