The experience of performing to an audience can be life-changing
Working as a cast, in which the finished product is more important than individual ego, is empowering and confidence building. The discipline required, whether it is as performer, technician or designer, is an excellent preparation for the world beyond school. Our specialist teachers encourage a sense of professionalism and production values, which results in work of a very high quality. It is also huge fun and an unforgettable part of school life for those involved.
From Early Years right through to A Level, everyone is encouraged to get involved.
Past productions have included adaptations of The Odyssey, and Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations, by Alan Aykbourne; Shakespeare productions at Lincoln Drill Hall including Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Twelfth Night; Our Country’s Good; Guys & Dolls; West Side Story; Pillars of the Community; Oliver! The Crucible; A Christmas Carol; and Pride and Prejudice.
Set, lighting and sound are designed and operated by students. We pride ourselves on promoting professional production values and inclusivity. All plays are chosen to suit the abilities and strengths of those involved.
London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts
We also offer the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) programme and pupils from as young as Year 1 are regularly entered for examination in Verse and Prose, Acting and Devised Performance.
Opening doors to an exciting career in drama.
“I can sincerely say that no other skill has been as academically and professionally useful to me as the ability to address individuals and groups with the poise and confidence that came from studying theatre.”
Drama at Lincoln Minster School has helped many of our past students in their careers – visit our alumni profiles.
Each year, we are proud to award Scholarships to pupils who are capable of extremely high levels of achievement and who we believe will make a significant contribution to the life of the school.
