“The Company”, Kavanagh College’s Performing Arts Troupe has been entertaining audiences since 2001. Directors Chris Manley and Pauline Meinung formed “The Company” in response to the interest students had in rehearshing for Major Productions. On the final night of “Jesus Christ Superstar”, in 2001, one student was heard to say, “What are we going to do now on Tuesday nights?”
Over the last sixteen years groups of students have traveled to Australia, in 2004, 2007, 2009, to perform in schools and workshop with major Australian Theatre Companies. Every Christmas, thousands of Dunedin primary school students, pre-school children and families have been entertained by “The Company’s” Christmas Pantomime. 2016 was no exception and “The Company” performed their “Christmas Cracker” to delighted audience members.
