Brisbane Grammar School produces three full scale productions each year showcasing an array of talented student artists.
Our theatre season offers a dynamic mix of plays that are thought provoking and highly entertaining. The Drama Department aims to be facilitators of artistic endeavours, which inspire our students artistically and respect their creative capital as young people. We believe that drama is a potent vehicle for the creative intelligence and identity not only of an individual but of a community.
Students are provided with opportunities to audition for productions in the Middle, Junior and Senior School Productions. Our rehearsals are framed to develop students’ skills not only in performance, but also in technical production, multimedia, stage management and marketing. BGS places particular emphasis on providing mentoring opportunities for students to gain experience in technical production and directing. Students learn how to stage-manage, assistant direct, design and operate lighting and sound for live performance. It is our hope that by providing opportunities for students to be involved in our dramatic productions we are also discovering new ways in which young people engage with the idea of performance and theatre.
Head of Drama is Ms Tanya Neilsen
