Ursuline Secondary School


Ursuline School Shows

An integral part of our school calendar each year is the production of a Musical Show, which usually takes place at the end of October. For students, parents and staff alike it demonstrates the importance of team-work and commitment and it nurtures a sense of school spirit. As well as fostering individual talent, it also makes the students aware of the possibilities for leisure activities when they leave school. We stage our shows in Sr Ursula Memorial Hall as it affords us the opportunity of catering for large casts – 200 approximately and an audience capacity of 600 plus.

They also are involved in the organisation of front of house as usherettes, raffle sellers and box office assistants.
