School Productions

The college has gained a reputation for its professional, quality shows for a number of years and showcases the talents of students in the performing arts in drama, dance and music from years 7-12. Our students have relived many different stories and have developed creative interpretations of a range of characters and genres in music.

They develop self-confidence and skills and knowledge about the many aspects of the production process; including the auditions, rehearsals and performances. Our stage has been produced by technology students and staff and the props and programs are designed by art and design students and staff.

The students:

  • Gain an understanding of creating performance, production and music performance.
  • Develop musical skills in singing and performing as part of a band, movements and styles in dancing, the imagination of an actor.
  • Develop skills in singing, dancing, acting and creating.
  • Develop skills in backstage, make-up, lighting and sound.
  • Gain an understanding of the role of the directors/producers.
  • Gain an understanding of the process involved in the stage, props, program and the vision and creative input of designers/artists

The staff and students work together annually to recreate unique performances of a range of musicals including; “Grease”, “Fame”, “Disco Inferno”, “Aladdin” and “Alice”. Matinee and evening performance are held annually in July/August at the Plenty Ranges Arts & Convention Centre, Ferres Blvd, South Morang.
