2018 Production Season - Saint Kentigern Phantom.png

The longest running show in Broadway history is set to open on the Saint Kentigern stage in April, with a cast, orchestra and student crew of over 140 students. Saint Kentigern is the first school in New Zealand with the rights to stage ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ – the dark tale of a disfigured man and his obsession with a beautiful, young soprano at the Paris Opera House.


Based on one of Hans Christian Andersen's most beloved stories and subsequently a classic animated Disney film, this year’s Middle College musical is ‘The Little Mermaid’ - a hauntingly beautiful love story for the ages. A combined cast, crew and orchestra of over 110 students will bring the story of the mermaid Ariel, King Triton's youngest daughter, to life as she pursues love with the help of her colourful friends, Flounder the fish, Scuttle the seagull and Sebastian the crab.

2018 Production - Season Saint Kentigern Dance Showcase Amended.png

From contemporary dance to jazz, hip hop and classical ballet, this year’s Dance Showcase will be a superb display of largely student-led performances, entailing over 100 dancers. The works have all been prepared by Year 12 and 13 Dance student choreographers for the two fabulous performance nights. The pressure is on both the choreographers and the performers to get every last detail correct as their work will be assessed for NCEA. 


This year, the Senior College Drama production will take a different direction with a studio piece, ‘The Red Shoes.’ A collaborative project, this will be performed in the new Dance Studios and will take the audience on a journey to bring to life Hans Christian Anderson’s fable ‘The Red Shoes.’ An integration of acting, movement and music will bring this dramatic piece to Saint Kentigern’s new and exciting performance space.

The Maori & Pasifika Cultural evening is a happy celebration of the mix of cultural backgrounds that make up our student body. It is a wonderful display on the pride with which the students represent their culture, their school and their families and the sense of belonging they bring to the stage.
