The Mac.Robertson Girls' High School has a strong tradition of providing a vibrant performing arts program, especially related to Drama and Theatre.
All students at Mac.Rob are able to benefit from being involved in curricular and co-curricular performance activities because of the resulting sense of achievement, camaraderie and boost to self-confidence. The time-management, interpersonal and intrapersonal skills developed during drama-related activities are essential for the development of our high-achieving students.
Drama at Mac.Rob is present in the classroom through elective Drama and Theatre Arts subjects, in co-curricular activities such as House Chorals, House Drama and Theatresports competitions, and in the combined schools’ productions with Melbourne High School. There are also performance opportunities which arise throughout the year which Mac.Rob students may participate in, such as the State Schools’ Spectacular.
Students also have the opportunity to pursue leadership roles in Drama and stage crew management. The Drama Captains promote, participate in, and host many of the aforementioned activities, work closely with Stage Crew, Production teams and Administration staff, and have the opportunity to make decisions about the future direction of Drama at Mac.Rob.
