The Performing Arts Program at Lyndale aims to expose students to the many benefits of participating in a vibrant and energetic practical performance program.
Lyndale Secondary College is a leader in Performing Arts and Music. With an increasing number of students electing to take on drama, dance and music from year 7 through to VCE, we are developing new facilities and exciting new programs. We have a full performance Calendar of Drama Plays, Music Performances Dance Competitions as well as our very own Start Search talent quest. We have recently moved into a new Performing Arts Building which includes a 300+ seat theatre.
We have developed an exciting new instrumental music program for years 7 and 8 where each student will have the opportunity to learn 2 instruments: Keyboard and one of Trumpet, Percussion, Bass Guitar, Saxophone, Guitar, Flute, Clarinet and voice. The program is one semester-long and it is hoped that students will elect to continue into the following semester and beyond as part of the mainstream instrumental music program. Our Instrumental Music Staff are amongst the most talented musicians and expert teachers in the Victorian education system.
As well as classroom Drama, Dance and Music, students can work alongside a dedicated team of teachers each year to put on a school musical. Over the course of the rehearsal period and for the run of the show the production team work together with the close-knit cast to choreograph, direct, learn songs and to design & create sets and costumes to ensure the success of the show each year. This is an amazing community event and we encourage all students and their families to get involved.
The school musical is incredibly welcoming and is a buzzing, happy and fun environment in which students mix with and become friends with other students across all year levels. The school musical is performed to a primary school audience as well as the night performances during the run of the show.
