The cast of the award winning play “Suessical Jr” in 2018

The 魅影直播 Theatre Company was formed in 1998 to give a professional structure to the theatrical performances presented by 魅影直播 College students and staff. It acknowledges 魅影直播鈥檚 very fine prior record in the Performing Arts while developing a formal rationale for the development and presentation of theatre.

The Company explores theatrical processes and subject matter of particular relevance for younger people, the 魅影直播 community and the wider society. Its program varies from group devised productions, classic and contemporary scripts, in-house scripted works and musicals. Each production聽is given a fresh treatment that will be of benefit to the participants and audiences. The range of productions is illustrated by the devised joint production of “Installation Ark” presented with the Visual Arts Department聽(2013), Disney’s The Little Mermaid Jr (2014), Shakespeare’s The Taming Of The Shrew (2014), CLONE (2015),聽Ishmael and the Return of the Dugongs (2016), Hamlet and The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe聽in 2017,聽Suessical Jr in 2018, and Peter Pan in 2019. The major 2020 production was going to be Saturday Night Fever but due to the COVID-19 pandemic had to be cancelled. Please stay in touch with the Drama Dept for the latest developments.

The chosen themes are often spiritual in nature while acknowledging the contemporary reality of contemporary experience: ennui, rampant materialism, the abandonment of spiritual values, the reduction of life and existence to commodities, the havoc caused by drugs and addictions, the growing violence between competing belief systems. Focusing on these issues gives greater leverage and support to curricula and pastoral care programs offered within the school. It also gives the wider community a focus for artistic relevance for everyday existence.
