Talent Development Program (TDP)

The Talent Development Program (TDP) is a program unique to the needs of students with a passion for the performing arts at the College.  All students will participate in an annual TDP Showcase evening that allows opportunity to present their performance repertoire to a live audience.

The aim of the TDP is to:

  • Further develop and extend skills, experience and confidence;
  • Provide field-trip and/or workshop experiences where appropriate;
  • Represent the College in eisteddfods, competitions, festivals and community events;
  • Develop collaborative skills devising cross-disciplinary theatre performances; and
  • Provide public performances for parents, peers, teachers and the community.

Musical and Large Scale Production

The College has a long tradition of musical productions. Every second year the College produces a whole school musical or large scaled drama production. Neighbouring colleges such as St Joseph’s Hunters Hill, St Ignatius College Riverview, Holy Cross College Ryde and Marist College Eastwood are also invited to partake in these large scale productions.

TDP Devised Theatre Experience

Every other year, TDP produce a student devised theatre experience. This is a collaborative venture across TDP Drama ensembles, Dance and the Composers Group.
