Our Drama Department is a hub of creativity, learning, and growth, offering students a comprehensive and enriching experience in the world of theatrical arts from years 7 to 12. With a focus on both artistic development and 21st-century skills, our curriculum is designed to empower students with the tools they need to succeed in an ever-evolving world.
Our carefully crafted curriculum blends foundational acting techniques, character development, stagecraft, and improvisation with modern approaches to drama education. Beyond honing performance skills, students develop critical thinking, effective communication, collaboration, and problem-solving abilities that are transferable to various academic and professional pursuits.
From iconic classics to contemporary gems, our Drama Department stages a diverse range of musicals and plays. These productions provide students with a platform to apply their skills, gain confidence in public speaking, and foster a deep appreciation for the art of storytelling.
Our regular Showcase Evenings offer students the opportunity to present their hard work to an enthusiastic audience. These events not only highlight the progress made but also build self-assurance, as students learn to perform in front of peers, parents, and community members.
Behind the Scenes Experience:
At Beenleigh SHS, we understand that a successful production relies on more than just the actors. Students also get a taste of the behind-the-scenes action, developing knowledge of lighting and sound design, stage setup, and production management. This holistic approach ensures that our students are well-rounded theatre enthusiasts, with a deep appreciation for every aspect of the production process.
We believe in bridging the gap between education and real-world experience. Our students benefit from interactions with seasoned professionals from the entertainment industry. Through workshops, guest lectures, and mentorship, students gain insights into the industry, helping them chart their own paths in the world of drama.
