Over the last decade, Blue Coat has developed an outstanding reputation for producing highly professional theatre and musical events, this is a true reflection of the time and dedication given by staff and students alike.
There are lots of opportunities for students to be involved in the performing arts at Blue Coat and we are extremely lucky to have great facilities for rehearsals and performances with Blue Coat Theatre providing a fantastic venue.
Blue Coat Theatre produces at least three annual dramatic productions. There is an annual musical open to all students, recent productions include ‘We Will Rock You’, ‘The Wiz’ and ‘Hairspray’. There is a production for students in key stages 4 and 5 such as ‘Lord of the Flies’, ‘ The Lady Killers’ and ‘The Good Person of Schezuan’. Also, an annual production for students in key stage 3, recently ‘The Comedy of Errors’, ‘Ignite’ and ‘The Canterbury Tales’. The school took a production to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017, ‘One Good Soul’. There are also bespoke community drama projects in partnership with a range of organisations and student directed productions.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of our productions soon! See our current season below.
