Musicals and plays


Varsity College offers a vast range of extra-curricular opportunities within the creative arts; including plays, musicals, dance groups, film and media creations, as well as the chance to enter a variety of competitions and exhibitions. We also have artist-in-residence workshops in the areas of dance, drama, film and television, music and visual art.

2016 Play: Peter Pan

Do you believe in fairies?

It is night and the Darling children are tucked up in their beds. Wendy hears the soft sound of someone crying and discovers Peter trying desperately to re-attach his shadow. Peter Pan and Tinkerbell lead the Darling children on a magical adventure: 'Second on the right and then straight on till morning.'

JM Barrie's classic, Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up, was brought to life by Varsity College Secondary School. It was a breathtaking production that really took you to the Never Land.

2015 Musical: The Addams Family

Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. And if that wasn't upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he's never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the entire family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday's 'normal' boyfriend and his parents.

Varsity College's Secondary School presented this musical at The Arts Centre Gold Coast.
