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.

Year 7 - 9 Musical: Honk! Jr

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


A heart-warming celebration of being different, Honk! Jr is a musical that is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its sparkling wit, unique charm and memorable score. 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.

Ugly, the lead character, looks quite a bit different from his darling duckling brothers and sisters. The other animals on the farm are quick to notice and point this out, despite his mother's protective flapping. Feeling rather foul about himself, the little fowl finds himself on an adventure of self-discovery, all the while unknowingly outwitting a very hungry Cat.
Along the way, Ugly meets a whole flock of unique characters and finds out being different is not a bad thing to be. Witty and hilarious, but also deeply moving, Honk! Jr will treat audiences to equal amounts of laughter and tears.

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