The Drama program at Trinity offers a plethora of opportunities for students interested in theatre, from on-stage performance roles to backstage lighting and sound design.

Our approach is guided by student voice. Themes explored are selected by and for the students, based on what they express interest in.

Students also have the opportunity to reinterpret and restage various works, underscored by an attitude of collaboration and creativity.

Classroom Drama for every age and stage

Drama is taught from Year 3 in Junior School with a dedicated subject specialist teacher, promoting the development of dramatic skills through creative play.

In Years 7 and 8, Drama is a core subject, underpinned by the values of creativity, collaboration and confidence.

In Years 9 and 10, Drama is offered as an elective. Building on the foundations, students are introduced to theatre styles, professional production analysis and extended performance works.

At the VCE level, both Drama and Theatre Studies are offered in collaboration with Ruyton Girls’ School as part of the Coordinate Program.

Performance opportunities

There is a strong sense of camaraderie between students during productions, especially being that performances are entirely student-run, from performing to calling the show, stage managing, mixing sound and coordinating the lighting cues. The band and orchestral components of musicals are also performed by Trinity and Ruyton students.

  • Junior School Musical (Years 3-6) (every second year)
  • Middle School Play (Years 7-8)
  • Year 9 Play (hosted by Ruyton Girls’ School)
  • Senior School Play (Years 10-12)
  • Trinity/Ruyton Musical (Years 9-12) (hosted by Trinity and Ruyton interchangeably)
