House Arts

Our annual House Arts competition occurs during the last week of Term 4. This St Catherine’s tradition witnesses our Year 11 leaders devise and create a performance based on the yearly stimulus. They lead the rest of their House in acting, singing, dancing and designing their production in readiness for the final performance, which is always in front of a huge audience. This competition allows students to try their hand at many different stagecraft areas including;

  • Design
  • Artistry
  • Multimedia
  • Publicity
  • Choreography
  • Composing
  • Sound and lighting operation
  • Direction
  • Performance

For Drama students keen to gain specialist skills and instruction, private tuition is available in individual and group sessions, which follow the Trinity College Speech and Drama syllabus as well as our Drama Club.
