In the Spotlight Play Day

In the Spotlight Play Day is an outreach program that provides students with an innovative and inspiring opportunity to authentically engage in the Drama and English syllabus. Participating school groups work with an experienced drama tutor at a one day workshop to create a play-built drama piece to be performed at the In the Spotlight Play Day showcase. At the end of the workshop day each class or group will have the ‘framework’ of their own play which will continue to be built and rehearsed with their teacher. Students then have the opportunity to perform their work for other participating school students at a professional performance venue. Tutors are experienced in using play building with children and the program is also a wonderful opportunity for teachers to develop their understanding of how to use drama in the classroom to enrich learning experiences across the key learning areas.

2020 dates:

Activity for this program is temporarily suspended for the foreseeable future to support efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 and maintain the safety and wellbeing of students and staff.

This program will resume in 2021.
