Musical/Play/Drama

Drama

Chevalier is well known for our annual productions which alternate between a musical and a drama or comedy play. All students have the opportunity to get involved, whether it’s for fun, personal development or to develop skills. There are roles for actors, singers and dancers, opportunities for musicians in the orchestra, or behind the scenes in the technical team including hair and makeup, costumes, set design, sound and lighting, and stage crew.

Our state-of-the-art Performing Arts Centre provides a professional environment for our students to perform in and over the years, Chevalier has won numerous awards at the Canberra Area Theatre Awards.
