Drama

Students in Years 8 to 12 can study Drama and Theatre Studies is offered to Year 10 students wanting to experience music, dance and drama together in one subject.

Students can enjoy both practical and theoretical experiences, aimed at developing performance skills and a passion for the Performing Arts. Theatre Studies students are asked to perform and develop live productions that are developed within the school.

Senior students can expect to experience real performance in our community by participating and enjoying events such as the Perth International Arts Festival (contemporary live performances) and the Catholic Performing Arts Festival, where Catholic Schools come together from around the State to compete and, more importantly, to celebrate the Arts together.

Younger students are able to participate in after-school performance programs such as Drama Club, which runs for Years 6 to 9 and is mentored and run by Senior Secondary students. This club aims to develop confidence and build performance skills as well as offer younger students the opportunity to perform to live audiences.

There are many performance opportunities for all students: The Middle Years Variety Night, which incorporates singing, dance and musical theatre; Senior Years Play, which aims at providing performance opportunity for classic acting students which in 2016 was the production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream; and Senior Musical, which offers musical theatre students the opportunity to perform for a live audience, which they did in 2016 with a sell-out season of the rock comedy musical, Little Shop of Horrors.

In 2017, MCC Drama staged a Whole School Production Seussical. This event involved students from Primary School and Secondary School take the stage at the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre for a full scale musical production.
