As well as producing many NCEA Drama Productions there are numerous Events that all Bedeans can participate in, including a Major Production, Stage Challenge. Variety Shows held each term give both Drama and Music Students an opportunity to perform in the school auditorium to an enthusiastic audience of parents and friends.
Open to all students, this competition has been fiercely contested at St Bede’s and students have regularly achieved a high standard at the regional and national festivals.
Within the Junior Drama Curriculum students participate in Theatre Sports to help explore acting techniques, boost self-confidence, unleash creativity and have a lot of fun. They then are able to carry on developing these skills and participate in the Junior and Senior Theatre Sports Competition.
Theatre Sports in Schools is a long-established cultural competition enjoying almost two decades in Christchurch since 1989. Teams of four players create original scenes, songs and stories based on audience suggestions.
