From the very early days, drama was an important part of the school's activities. Initially "school
plays" were limited to short plays or single scenes performed at Speech Day, often with one
or two foreign plays alongside an English play.
In later years a "featured" play, produced by Les Seaword (Geography teacher), was
performed for a paying audience. This particular practice developed daramatic talents in a number
of boys, several of whom went on to a professional career in the theatre or in television.
When Les Seaword left, the boys joined with the Girls' Grammar to produced Gilbert & Sullivan's
Pirates of Penzance in 1969, and The Mikado two years later.
