Combined Colleges’ Musicals

St Mary’s College and St Edmund’s College have a long tradition of staging high quality and entertaining musicals. Students from both schools have the opportunity to audition to be involved in a musical every year, with each school taking responsibility for producing the musical in alternate years; St Mary’s College producing musicals in odd years.

The experience of being involved in a musical is like none other. It develops students’ performance abilities in singing, dance and drama, as well as their teamwork, collaboration and organisational skills. Opportunities to be involved in the musical are not just limited to cast positions, as students can be involved in playing for the orchestra/band or be involved in the backstage, technical or front of house areas.

The Combined Colleges’ Musical is usually held in the first week of Term 3 each year at the Ipswich Civic Centre.

Some previous musicals include:

2019 – Matilda the Musical

2018 – Rock of Ages

2017 – Hairspray

2016 – The Wiz

2015 – Legally Blonde
