Head of Performing Arts – Janine Hansen
St Teresa’s Performing Arts Department offers students an exemplary selection of extra-curricular clubs and activities from Drama and Dance Clubs, to our Performing Arts Conservatoire and Musical Theatre Club. LAMDA is highly popular and our excellent LAMDA examination results are testament to the high standard of tuition offered to our students, We are extremely proud to have Stage and Screen Theatre School and Agency as part of our after school offerings as well as ISTD Dance exam classes
We have two main whole school productions each year, with a large scale drama production in the Autumn Term and a musical in the Spring Term. Previous productions have included Les Miserables, A Christmas Carol, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Oliver and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
We are keen for as many students to be involved in each production and our large cast and orchestra is supported by students who are in charge of lighting, sound, costume, make-up and stage management. Individual year groups are given the opportunity to perform pieces worked on in the lessons to an audience throughout the year and the Performing Arts Department’s calendar is brought to a close by the Performing Arts Evening, at the end of the Summer Term, which showcases all of the exciting and wonderful work the Performing Arts students have created throughout the year.
