Drama and Theatre is alive and flourishing at Kavanagh College!
In 2019, Kavanagh participated in the University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival entering three student-directed pieces. One of these made it to the regional final - A great success.
In 2020, Kavanagh College is hosting the Festival with our drama students eager to have success again. Each year three student-directed five-minute scenes are entered. Term One will be busy with rehearsals and preparation with scenes from Antony and Cleopatra, Midsummer Nights Dream and Othello.
In 2019, Junior Drama Club was created to offer junior students at Kavanagh a chance to meet and socialise with a variety of students who all shared an interest in Drama. Once a week, during lunchtime students gather to participate in a variety of theatre sports skits and experiment with drama techniques.
In Term Four, Dunedin primary school students, pre-school children and families are entertained by Christmas Pantomime. The past two Pantomimes have been written and directed by Erica Ward with the collaboration of senior Performing Arts students. Pantomime is a great opportunity for students to be involved in many ways. The show involves singing, dancing, acting and much much more! A great show to get our community into the Christmas spirit.
