Drama is an exciting and experiential subject with numerous co-curricular elements.

It encourages students to be expressive and creative with their ideas as well as improving their communication and confidence. Drama enables students to form and extend their own performance ideas, develop performance skills for the stage and capably respond to amateur and professional Drama. In addition to assessment and class work, the St Laurence’s Drama department seeks to provide students with a variety of co-curricular Drama experiences to enrich and deepen their appreciation for this subject.

The highlight of 2013 was the performance of Oliver! the well-loved, rollicking musical of epic proportions. A talented double cast of more than 100 students from St Laurence’s and numerous Brisbane all girls schools, successfully brought to life this timeless musical. Performing classics like Food Glorious Food, the production thoroughly entertained the audiences. A choral group and full piece orchestra and band joined the performers, resulting in an outstanding production.

Another successful co-curricular activity is the College’s ongoing training and participation in the Youth Theatre Sports competition.
