What’s on

A snapshot of the performing arts calendar at The McDonald College.

Events listed below that have a link to the Box Office are open to everyone. We encourage prospective students and families considering enrolling at the College to attend one of the upcoming events to experience first-hand what can be achieved when we work as a team.

If you are looking for information about Open Days or Auditions please visit the Apply section of our website.

Current students, families and friends looking for the most current information about all school events (not just performing arts) should check the School Calendar in the Portal.
