At St. Patrick’s College, all students are strongly encouraged to participate in extracurricular performing arts activities. There are countless opportunities in music and students also have a range of opportunities available to them in Drama and performance. Some of these are the O’Shea Shield, debating, theatre sports, and Sheila Winn Shakespeare.
Every two years the College aims to stage a major musical. These are often performed in collaboration with other local colleges such as St. Catherine’s College, St. Mary’s College and Wellington East Girls’ College. In alternate years, St. Patrick’s students are presented with opportunities to audition and perform in those schools’ shows.
The last musical staged was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat in 2018. The plan is to stage our next production in September 2022.
