Drama and Theatre are alive and flourishing at Kavanagh College!

Shakespeare Festival 

The University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival is an important and exciting event on the school’s theatre calendar. In recent years Kavanagh College has entered various student-directed five-minute pieces in the festival and won a number of awards, including first place in 2021 and 2022 which meant they were then eligible to compete in the national competition in Wellington. And, each of these teams has returned to Dunedin with a national award. Students who take part in the Shakespeare Festival not only have lots of fun, but they also gain invaluable experience and can often use their involvement towards NCEA Drama credits.

 

Christmas Pantomime 

At the end of each year, local primary school students, pre-school children and families are entertained by the Kavanagh College Christmas Pantomime which is written and directed by school staff and senior performing arts students. The Pantomime is a great opportunity for Kavanagh students to be involved in a theatre production - either on stage, as a musician or behind the scenes. The show includes singing, dancing and acting, is lots of fun for both the participants and the audiences and is a great way for the community to get into the Christmas spirit.
