Drama and Musical Productions

The Performing Arts Department at Chevalier College stages an annual production, alternating between a musical and a drama or comedy play…


In May 2017 Chevalier College presented “The Mikado” – a modern madcap interpretation of this popular comic opera, first performed in May 1885 at the Savoy Theatre in London – 132 years ago!

With a cast and crew of more than 90 students, this production was yet another showcase of talents – with sensational sets, costumes, music, singing, dancing and dramatic | comedy performances delivering a feast for the senses.

“Talented actors, quality musical and singing performances, a clever script, great costumes and sets – it takes a lot to present a great stage production. And Chevalier College’s latest musical offering, The Mikado, has it all,” wrote Jackie Meyers, Editor of the Southern Highland News after attending the Opening Night at Chev!

Don't miss this hilarious night of witty, comedy fun in the theatre!The Chevalier College production of The 39 Steps in May 2016 brought together a clever and tireless ensemble cast who bounced from scene to scene with contagious enthusiasm that kept their audiences entertained from start to finish.

The madcap story of The 39 Steps follows a dashing hero Richard Hannay, a lonely bachelor who gets more than he bargained for during a night out at the music hall.  A parody of Hitchcock’s 1935 film of the same name, The 39 Steps is a comedy in the guise of an espionage thriller with Hitchcock’s usual conventions: the accused-but-innocent man, the possibly treacherous blonde, the unreliable police; all gelled together with witty use of props that had everyone in hysterics…  Congratulations to all involved!!
