Large school performances occur at least twice a year, creating a huge buzz around the Drama department. Every other year Drama joins forces with the Music department to put on an all singing, all dancing musical of choice. Recent productions include: Grease, Les Miserables, Jekyl and Hyde, Teechers, Blue Remembered Hills, Bouncers and Sweeney Todd – to name but a few.
Other evening performances take place in the Drama Studio which is fully equipped with sound, lighting and digital projection technology. The studio space offers an intimate setting which is perfect for smaller performances.
There are also lots of technical and stage management responsibilities available during productions, so there is no excuse for students not to get involved during their time at Birkdale; no matter their skillset.
