The drama department puts on as much theatre as possible. There is one School Play for the Upper School to audition for each year, and one for the Junior School.
As well as the main school plays and musicals, there is a House Play Festival Competition for a trophy each year, when individual houses perform one act plays. Some are devised and some are scripted. Much hilarity and team work ensues, and some plays from this source head off to the Edinburgh Fringe in August. The school play goes to the Fringe approximately every other year. The school has also taken part in the Short Shakespeare National Festival, performing The Taming of the Shrew.
There's a real buzz about the place. Good Schools Guide
Pupils have directed their own plays, and involved other members of the school in productions in addition to these shows.
Glenalmond will once again be taking a show to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in the summer of 2017.
