St Columba’s College runs a very active extra-curricular Drama programme.

The Sixth Form join together with the girls from Loreto College each autumn to form The Extras and perform at the Abbey Theatre. The very high standards attained by the students have receive numerous plaudits over the years, and the material performed is often challenging. Recent productions have included ‘Amadeus’, ‘Black Comedy’, ‘Improbable Fiction’, ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ and ‘The Real Inspector Hound’. Plays are rehearsed during an intensive five week period and the College is delighted to be able to use the excellent facilities of the Abbey Theatre. It is a tradition that is now deeply entrenched in the school calendar.

In the Trinity Term, the school presents the College Musical. This is also produced in conjunction with Loreto College. The Musical gives students the opportunity to act, sing, dance in both principal and chorus roles. It also presents a chance for students to contribute backstage, controlling lights and sound, as well as performing in the accompanying band or orchestra. Recent productions have included ‘Return to the Forbidden Planet’, ‘Little Shop of Horrors’, ‘Guys and Dolls’ and ‘Carousel’.
