St Michael’s students are immersed in a vast range of artistic activities including music, drama and dance. We believe that the performing arts play a vital role in assisting students to understand more about themselves, each other and the role the arts have on our world. In addition to performance, many students have the opportunity to be involved in production elements, such as lighting and sound operation, set construction and painting, stage management, and hair and make-up.

St Michael’s offers a wide choice of productions for students wanting to engage in drama or dance, as well as a broad range of instrumental and choral ensembles.
