Drama offers a wide variety of opportunities for students to develop as arts practitioners. Listed below are just a sample of the offering available to students at MacGregor State High School:

Shake Fest - a unique opportunity for students across QLD to focus their artistic abilities in an all-inclusive creative celebration of the works of William Shakespeare. SHAKE FEST is the original cross schools Festival dynamically connecting students, schools, and industry through Shakespeare. (Shake& Stir Theatre Co.)

Youth Theatresports Competition - Theatresports™ is improvised theatre played as a spectator sport. Teams invent scenes from suggestions they are given, while following sets of rules called “games”. Everything is made up on the spot, the lights, music, dialogue, mime and song. The teams are judged on their ability to follow game rules, deliver a cohesive story line and entertain the audience. It is fast paced, unpredictable and hilarious. Best of all, it’s fun. (The Sit Down Comedy Club)

The Scene Project - encourages drama students throughout the state to engage in the creative process of performance, from rehearsal through to presentation. Each year a playwright pens a new work and the participating drama groups are tasked with the challenge of creating their own unique 15-minute version of the play. The Scene Project is about collaboration...building confidence and encouraging live performance in a professional space and manner. The project concludes with local schools coming together in a professional theatre venue to share their performance. (Queensland Theatre)

Positive Mindset Creative Arts Festival - promotes positive thinking about Mental Health and increase help-seeking behaviours with a Creative Arts Focus.

Class Clowns - Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Class Clowns encourages students aged 14 – 18 (Years 9 – 12) to develop a stand-up, sketch, physical or musical comedy act to perform. Students get to take part in a workshop with a professional comedian before performing in front of a live audience. If they progress, they will then go on to a State Final, where they’re in the running to secure a place at the National Grand Final. All national finalists perform at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival for a chance to win the Class Clowns title and a $2,500 prize package! (Class Clowns)
