The House Play Festival is a friendly competition in which the true spirit of ensemble theatre comes to the fore.

Since its inception in 1991, the Somerset College House Play Festival has been one of the highlights of the College’s cultural calendar. Under the leadership of Year 11 and/or 12 Directors, each House prepares and presents a play over two evenings at the end of Term One. Students in Years 7 to 12 are able to audition for these plays.

Whilst Drama staff and Heads of House guide students throughout the process, the plays are selected, directed, produced and performed by students.
