At St Andrew’s College there are numerous opportunities for you to become involved in cultural activities such as music, drama, dance and public speaking.
Each year, Middle School and Senior College productions grace our theatre stage, giving you an authentic taste of Broadway or the West End. The script and music for our biennial Preparatory School production are written entirely by students, who also design the sets and costumes.
In the Secondary School, you are able to participate in Theatresports as a year round activity, and to perform in our entry for the University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival – an event we have excelled in recently, with a number of students earning trips to London to perform with the Young Shakespeare Company at the Globe Theatre. You may also elect to take private speech and drama lessons, either individually or in small groups.
Our music department provides professional tuition in singing and a wide range of instruments, as well as regular opportunities for you to hone your performing skills in groups such as our extraordinary jazz and concert bands, choirs, barbershop groups and rock bands.
