The Performing Arts are part of The Knox School’s curriculum and co-curricular activities, but an important aspect of their purpose is to draw The Knox School community together.
The Knox School offers students the opportunity to participate in numerous professional and competitive events in local, national and international arenas.
The biennial School Musical is a highlight event and provides students with practical theatre and performance experience via involvement in a complete theatrical production in a professional theatre environment. Students are also encouraged to contribute as a member of the technical and backstage crew, along with a keen and dedicated team of The Knox School staff and parents. This is a Performing Arts activity by the community, for the community. The 2008 School Musical Production was the bright and dynamic ‘Thoroughly Modern Millie' which received awards and commendations from the Victorian Theatre Guild. In 2010, we were on stage again with "Back to the 80s!", another runaway success and in 2012 we staged a brilliant production of "Seussical".
The Knox School participates in national performance competitions including Wakakirri - a national storytelling festival involving Junior and Middle School students, and J-Rock. Our students also compete in Music and Drama competitions, the ‘Generations In Jazz’ competition in Mt. Gambier and the ‘Rhapsody Rotorua' competition in New Zealand.
The Performing Arts at The Knox School are energetic, exciting and all-encompassing!
