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.

Tickets are now on sale for the Years 10-12 Musical The Drowsy Chaperone.

The Drowsy Chaperone pays tribute to the Jazz-age shows of the 1920s and the power those shows held to transport audiences into a dazzling fantasy and to lift spirits in times of sadness.

The audience will be greeted by the narrator, Man in Chair, who is a fan of vintage musicals. Man in Chair seems to be suffering from free-floating depression, and he quickly decides to cheer things up by playing a record of the original cast recording of a fictional Broadway musical entitled The Drowsy Chaperone. No sooner has the needle touched the record than we, together with the narrator, are transported back to a 1928 Broadway theatre in New York and into The Drowsy Chaperone, a play-within-a-play crammed full of every cliché, gag and gimmick from the early age of musicals.

The students of Loreto Toorak and St Kevin’s College have had a wonderful time rehearsing this fabulous musical, which will have the audience in raptures from start to finish. The cast and crew look forward to seeing you there!
