Each year, at least two full-scale productions are staged - a Senior Production in the Autumn Term and a Junior Production in the Summer Term. The productions are always delivered to an exceptionally high standard and encourage girls from across the School to work together. This helps students to develop their teamwork skills, professionalism and artistic excellence. Recent productions have included Hetty Feather by Jacqueline Wilson and Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale which was commended on Twitter by the playwright herself.
QM’s stage crew welcomes those who want to learn the ropes and get involved behind the scenes with props, hair, make-up, lighting, costumes, cues and set management. By being a part of the stage crew, students grow in maturity, learn about personal responsibility, develop teamwork skills and demonstrate their ability to work independently, performing complex tasks to a high standard.
With outstanding facilities including the state-of-the-art Chapman Theatre, sound and lighting systems and carpenters’ workshop, Drama at QM is an outstanding opportunity for all and everyone is welcome to play a part.
