Students are encouraged to develop performance skills within the core and elective programs available at South Oakleigh College.

Every year South Oakleigh students are invited to audition for the annual musical theatre production. Students of all year levels are able to take part in a whole-school theatrical experience. The 2019 school musical was “Aladdin Jr” it was a very energetic and lively show, which the students all thoroughly enjoyed.
