Music & Dramatic Arts


Be part of the Music & Dramatic Arts (MaDA) programme and experience the college community at its most inspired, creative, innovative and exciting.

Based primarily at English Bridge Campus, the facilities both ‘on the roof’ and in the performance spaces provide the ideal environment to be involved and develop your performance skills.

There are many opportunities throughout the college year to be involved either as an individual performer or as part of an ensemble, band, chamber group, choir, cast, crew, tech team or club.  

Just to give you a flavour of what MADA does, our season included events such as two concerts, an innovative production of CABARET!, Celebrating Achievement Evening, a Bands Night, and Comp/Week (series of events for young composers). We had such groups as an improvised drama club, Voci Forti (audition only choir), a college choir, concert band, orchestra, big band, four rock bands, a jazz combo, string quartet, dance workshops with Arcadian Youth Dance, amongst many others. We've also recently done 'Evita'.

Instrumentalists interested in performing in any of our main ensembles should sign up to our unique ‘music activities’ course. This involves a free Tuesday afternoon set aside for rehearsals and jamming!

We're excited to announce that The Addams Family will be our production in the Spring Term. Watch out for more information via our social media pages SSFCShrewsbury.
