Wheelers Hill Secondary College has a proud history of presenting quality musical productions to the wider community. Students from Year 7 – 10 have the opportunity to audition, rehearse and present a musical production every year – providing all students the chance to extend on their confidence, organisational skills, creative problem solving and interpersonal development. This spectacular whole school event takes place offsite at state-of-the-art theatrical venues, providing students the opportunity to work with theatre industry professionals.
The Production goes beyond the acting and presentation of a musical, as the Program provides multiple opportunities for all students with different interests and skillsets.
We offer a wonderful Production Design Internship Program, where students interested in the production roles of costume, make up and prop work alongside Artists in residence in the planning, development and creation of key pieces in the show.
Students are also offered the chance to work on the technical side of theatre, fulfilling roles in crew, lighting, sound and set design.
