Each year our Middle and Senior students combine to stage a major drama production. The whole community looks forward to seeing our actors, singers and dancers performing on stage supported by our extremely talented musicians.
The professional quality of these productions accounts for our undeniable reputation for excellence in performing arts. Recent major productions include ‘Seussical’, ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ ‘Grease’, ‘Beauty & The Beast’, ‘Cabaret’, ‘Fame’ and 'West Side Story'. Middle and Senior students also have an opportunity to showcase their classwork in our excellent new R.T. Hille Performing Arts Centre.
Our major annual production, always performed at the Frankston Arts Centre, is selected to stretch the performers and usually contains a cast in excess of 60 members. Supporting those on stage is a large crew, working behind the scenes honing their skills in the myriad of jobs required to present a professional production. The talents of students involved in set construction, costume design, production artwork, publicity, sound, lighting and staging never fail to impress the audience.
Performing Arts Nights are relaxed evenings of student entertainment, held once per semester. These nights provide students from all performance disciplines the opportunity to perform to intimate audiences as well as providing an outlet for die-hard performing artists. Tap dancers, vocalists, dance teams, musicians, drama performers and budding rock stars emerge from the wings.
The D.B. Clarke Junior School alternates between an annual musical production and a play. This provides more students with the tremendous opportunity to experience the joy and benefits of being a cast member in a stage show and fully experience the Performing Arts. These productions are held in The Ansett Hall.
In our Early Childhood Centre, students perform in an annual nativity play for their families.
