ST. MARY'S CANOSSIAN COLLEGE

Drama Week 2023
Across the Street - Ticket Ordering

        We are delighted to announce that SMCC Drama is back on stage again with performances from Saturday 18th February – Saturday 25th February 2023 of a new musical play, Across The Street.
 
        The play is a musical drama written by Mr Geoff Oliver with some input from the Core Production Team with songs and dances composed by our students. 
 
        Set in Victorian London the play deals with the haves and the have nots in society, divisions which were even more sharply divided at that time than they are today. In the play, which has echoes of Oliver Twist and Bleak House by Charles Dickens, a group of orphan girls, struggling for survival on the harsh streets of London, come into contact with a family of aristocrats, with results that are shocking and surprising.
 
       The production team tries to create the contrast between the wealth of Victorian England and the utter degradation of those in the huge underworld who were callously shut off from the benefits of an outwardly flourishing and advanced society and highlight the irony of a society that preached high morals and ideals yet cared little for those in need.

Drama Week 2021

 Dear St. Marians and friends,
 
        Around this time every year, you will be thinking of the annual drama at St. Mary’s. We regret to announce that the drama week to be held from 16th to 24th April 2021 has to be cancelled.
 
        At the beginning of the school year, we started launching the drama production in the hope of holding it as scheduled.  However, the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic has seriously disrupted the school normal routine. Face to face classes and drama rehearsals have been suspended as all on campus group activities are not allowed. This has posed great difficulties in putting together the production.  
 
        In view of the uncertain development of the pandemic and taking health concerns into consideration, we could not but call off the drama performances this school year. We understand that this may bring disappointment but we promise we will continue our effort in sustaining the drama legacy at St. Mary’s.
 
        We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude for your understanding and continuous support to the school drama.   We are looking forward to seeing you in the drama week next year.

Sustaining the Drama Tradition

With the support of our past St. Marians, the school hall is now equipped with a new stage lighting system which enhances the visual appeal of the production. In order to carry on the drama tradition in St. Mary’s, we are still accepting donations to finance the operation of the annual production, including the maintenance of the stage lighting in future.

Please make the cheque payable to The IMC of St. Mary’s Canossian College and mark ‘Drama Development Fund’ on the envelope.
