I’m delighted to share some exciting news from the vibrant world of Performing Arts at Oxley College.  The energy is high, creativity is flowing and the stage is set for an extraordinary year ahead.

Year 8 Music Theatre Elective

For the first time, Oxley College proudly introduces the Year 8 Musical Theatre elective, and the debut was nothing short of spectacular! Last Monday marked the kick-off of this thrilling journey, led by Katrine Pascoe, Head of Drama. The inaugural lesson echoed with enthusiasm, as students showcased their talent by presenting their short interpretation of full-length musicals. The atmosphere was not just lively; it was loud and fabulous, promising an incredible musical journey for our budding performers.

“The Book of Everything” on sale soon

Brace yourselves for the upcoming production of “The Book of Everything,” with Phil Cunich at the helm as the Director. This is a deeply moving story about family and the triumph of love over fear. Students have been giving generously of themselves during these rehearsals.  Keep an eye out for ticket announcements – this is an experience you won’t want to miss. 
Performance dates: Wednesday 28 February – Saturday 2 March 2024
