Drama Tour – New York & Chicago
The Drama Department will be running a tour to the U.S.A. in April 2020. The tour will travel to Chicago and New York taking in visits to extraordinary theatre and participation in workshops, along with awesome sight-seeing and mandatory shopping. The tour is for girls in Years 10, 11 or 12 in 2020. It is open initially to girls currently studying Drama. If places are available, we will offer it to other girls who can demonstrate a strong interest in Drama.
Deposits and Booking Forms are due by Tuesday June 11th to secure your place.

A Chorus Line – Bookings
Bookings are now open for our 2019 Musical – A Chorus Line. Final rehearsals are developing impressively as all departments merge to form the show. We look set to enjoy another superb production at SCEGGS. Tickets may be obtained from The Seymour Centre box office.
You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single, fleeting moment when you feel alive.
