Student Life


Every second year St. Patrick's College, in collaboration with St John Fisher College, present a musical for our College and local communities. A project such as this brings together a large and diverse range of talents in an environment of acceptance and fun.

Students of any age are welcome to audition and each production sees more than 200 young men and women taking on the roles of performers, musicians, artists and designers, technical and backstage crew, costume design and 'front of house' volunteers. Certainly the chance of working in a large cast with a live band and professional level technical assistance is a once in a lifetime moment. The whole event is rich in its possibilities to allow each individual to shine and the rewards for both College communities cannot be measured.

Some successful musicals to date include:

1999 - Bats
2001 - How The West Was Warped
2003 - Back To The 80s
2005 - Guys and Dolls
2007 - Hound of Music
2009 - Sherwoodstock
2011 - Wedding Singer
2013 - Camp Rock
