Drama Companies

Drama companies complement the drama program offered at the School, helping to develop confidence and skills in young people.

High School students can select from a variety of options in the High School Drama Company program.

Students can participate in a wide variety of drama areas

The companies are:
 

  • Writing for Theatre
  • Physical Theatre 
  • Theatresports
  • Shakespeare Globe Festival
  • Year 7 Company
  • Year 8 Company
  • Production Company

Students are able to learn new skills or extend existing skills in the craft of acting and story-telling. Students are also are given access to experts and practitioners who specialise with passion and enthusiasm in a particular area of drama.

Drama companies teach that our bodies are instruments for performance — costumes, scenery and lighting can help to create mood and contextualise performance work, but essentially theatre is created as the performer manipulates the elements of drama, using his/her body in the space to create a negotiated meaning between actor and audience.

Theatresports teams tread the boards in both Intermediate and Senior statewide competitions. The School also participates in Shakespeare competition days.
