After a three-year hiatus, Tanglin returned to the big stage with Broadway classic, West Side Story. We sat down with student participants as well as Kathryn (Kate) Edwards, who led a team of 82 students; actors, designers, dance choreographers, musicians, back-stage crew, who put in hundreds of man hours for three nights of performances, to learn more about their sentiments behind the scenes.
Drama has an important role to play in the personal development of our students and the skills and qualities developed, including teamwork, creativity, leadership and risk-taking. Drama promotes self-esteem and gives students a sense of achievement.
Throughout the year, there are many high-quality ensembles, recitals, performances and exhibitions. Tanglin also participates in many national, regional and international festivals and conferences that have inspired our students, staff, parents and the wider community.
Senior students are encouraged to develop their interest an enjoyment in drama and theatre both as participants and as informed members of an audience, fostering an enthusiasm for and critical appreciation of the subject.
Specialist teaching, along with regular visits from international theatre companies, theatre practitioners and opportunities for students to perform in both intimate and large-scale performances, enhance students’ experience of Drama.
"The Arts at Tanglin provides me with a balance from the academics. It's a place where I can creatively express how I feel and develop new friendships whilst pursuing my passion for performing."
