Co-Curricular Drama at Marlborough College Malaysia

Senior School

In the Senior School, we offer the opportunity for pupils to participate in a production, produced and directed by the Lower 6th as part of their IB Diploma; it seeks to increase confidence, develop skills and build community. Remove to Year 13, are able to audition but all who wish to be in the show will participate, either as a main role or as part of the chorus. This is a dynamic, fun and challenging project where pupils learn to lead and model this for future years. The Senior School also offers a Drama Scholarship programme.

Prep School

In the Prep School, our co-curricular drama programme seeks to involve pupils in a wide variety of performance styles, switching between genres for productions. The department has established a nativity show for Year 4 and an Upper Prep musical for Years 5 to 8. There are also extra-curricular drama classes available to pupils from a visiting Drama School, Centrestage. During these sessions, pupils have the opportunity to work towards Trinity and LAMDA exams as well as explore Creative Theatre. There are a number of theatre visits during the year, mostly to Singapore, in which pupils have the chance to experience watching touring and local productions.  The co-curricular element of Prep School drama at the College aims to strengthen pupils’ understanding and interest in the subject, preparing them for drama study within the Senior School.
