WHS is bursting with dramatic opportunities for all students - providing the chance for talent to shine whilst at the same time encouraging as many girls as possible to come along and join in the fun.
At WHS we work hard and expect resilience and determination but the laughter and cheers emanating from rehearsals in the Theatre or the Senior Hall truly indicate the joy and satisfaction drama offers. There are large-scale musicals and plays to be involved in, and lots of drama competitions to keep you on your toes this year. We always hold auditions, as they are in themselves markers of grit and resilience, but we always look to involve everyone who wants to be involved. Older students are also actively encouraged to take on the running of clubs and some enjoy the challenge of directing other students in their own shows. For those Year 13 girls with the drive and determination, performing in the Edinburgh Festival is an exciting way to end the year. If you want to be on the backstage team - making props, painting, operating lighting and sound - we can give you the training you need. Drama at WHS is challenging, rewarding and lots of fun. Come and get involved.
