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.

Shrek Jr

Tickets are now on sale for the Year 7-9 Musical Shrek Jr.

It's a "big bright beautiful world" for everyone's favourite ogre in Shrek Jr, a musical based on the Oscar-winning animated film. A large cast of year 7-9 students from St Kevin’s and Loreto has been working on this lively, family-friendly musical since early February. 

In a faraway kingdom, the green ogre Shrek finds his swamp invaded by banished fairytale misfits, runaways who've been cast off by Lord Farquaad, a tiny terror with big ambitions. When Shrek sets off with a wise-cracking Donkey to confront Lord Farquaad, he's handed a task - if he rescues feisty Princess Fiona from the Dragon-guarded tower, his swamp will be returned to him. But, a fairy tale wouldn't be complete without a few unexpected twists and turns along the way. 

Other popular characters in the show include Pinocchio, the Three Little Pigs and the feisty Gingerbread Man. The action culminates in a big finale with the toe-tapping hit song “I’m A Believer.”

With a running time of only one hour, Shrek Jr is suitable for all ages.
