Drama at St. Lawrence College

At St. Lawrence College we recognise the power of “drama” as an educational tool whatever the age of a child.

Drama provokes imagination, exercises powers of expression and supports the emotional maturity of a child. But also self-control, interpretation and teamwork are among the many skills enhanced by the process of a successful drama production. Above all drama at St. Lawrence College is tremendous fun for pupils, creating an outlet for energy and both physical and cerebral creativity along the way.

...hundreds of pupils have matured thanks to those experiences...

Highly popular drama clubs in both the junior and senior school work towards annual productions while taking time to explore theatrical and dramatic technique and practice along the way. Pupils are encouraged to learn about themselves through performance while others derive their sense of accomplishment by working backstage on props, lighting, sound and set design.

Recent productions, including Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet”; Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot” in the senior school and “The Wizard of OZ” and “Modern Fairy Tales” and “Alice in Wonderland” in the junior school, all performed in our purpose-built Cultural Hall, earned rave reviews. More importantly hundreds of pupils have grown for the experience and will never forget being a part of a memorable performance.
