Performing Arts

Damascus has an enviable reputation for Drama productions. Since the inception of Damascus College in 1995, the Performing Arts staff have worked hard to instil a love of performance within our students. We are proud of our achievements and are indeed lucky to have so many staff at Damascus with an interest, background and passion for theatre and who recognise its special power to create confidence, discipline and pride within students of all year levels. In 2010 a Drama club was established to cater to the many students who wish to pursue their interest in theatre outside the classroom experience.

Each year the school presents a whole school production by way of a school musical, or a play in alternate years. Every second year in Holy Week Damascus presents ‘The Final Hours’, a contemporary dramatisation of Jesus’ final hours on earth. Students are involved in many ways, not just acting but also working backstage and front of house.
