Drama Opportunities


Involvement in drama can build confidence, foster creativity and offer a sense of community to young people. Our extra-curricular programme offers students a variety of performance opportunities.

Sheilah Winn Shakespeare


The University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival is an opportunity for students to perform a 15 min Teacher Directed or 5 min Student Directed scene from one of Shakespeare’s plays. Scenes are performed at the regional festival in Term One. Two performances from the regional competition win the opportunity to travel to Wellington for the National competition.

Drama Club


The Lunchtime Drama Club is a group of all ages who meet once a week to play drama games, learn about theatresports and to work on original drama. The focus of this group is negotiated by the group with their Drama Club teacher.

Junior Production 


The Junior Production is a TGC tradition. All Year 10 Performing Arts classes create a drama or dance based on a central theme and inspired by story books. Primary school children from around the Bay come to watch the six performances over three days.




School Production


Tauranga Girls’ College produces a joint production with Tauranga Boys’ College and it is one of the highlights in the school year. Beauty and the Beast, FAME, Sweeny Todd and The Addams Family are just some of the productions that have been staged at Baycourt Theatre.
