Performing Arts

The Performing Arts are a vibrant part of the educational experience at Scotch College.

The Arts recognise the whole student, fostering a sense of self, community, culture and spirituality in a safe but experimental environment.

Through active participation in drama, musicals, choirs and orchestras, dance productions and film-making, students are engaged in a vital world where their imagination, creativity and technical skills are developed and nurtured.


Performing Arts Event Calendar


Scotch has one of South Australia's few heritage theatres, built in 1885 by the Barr Smith family. Restored in 1981, it provides a performing and studio space for many of our activities. Other facilities include an outdoor Amphitheatre, a restored Victorian drawing room, an extensive music suite, 'SoundHouse' music technology room and recording studio, a chapel and dance studios.

Both external and internal students can participate in the Scotch Performing Arts program.



Internal Scotch students have the opportunity to undertake formal foundation studies of the Performing Arts as part of their scheduled school lessons. In the Middle School and Senior School, the following areas represent the Performing Arts:

  • Drama
  • Music
  • Dance
  • Film

Scotch students have a long tradition of successful endeavours in the Performing Arts and many Old Collegians are now pursuing professional careers as actors, musicians, dancers and film makers following their foundation studies at Scotch.
