The Drama Club has a tradition of excellence and takes pride as a club of distinction. Members of the CCA strive to do their best by being inclusive, positive, supportive and encouraging as they gather to discuss about contemporary issues and transforming them into performative art.

We aim to groom students to be confident individuals with empathy. We also hope to empower students to harness the creative platform of theatre to make a positive change to the community and beyond.

Our Landmark Productions

2020 – Lilin

Lilin, despite not being performed, represents the tenacity and adaptability of the Drama Club. Due to Covid-19, the production only exists in script form. Yet, the Drama Club soldiered on and our script writers consolidated and fine-tuned their ideas to produce Lilin – a production that recognises the sacrifices our mother make throughout our lives.

We hope to bring this on stage one day.

2019 – Found You

Found You brings the plight of the Rohingya refugee crisis center-stage. The sheer brutality that arises from the abuse of power confronts the audience as they discover how entire villages are destroyed. Yet, there is always hope as a soldier rescues a baby from a sea of corpses.
2017-2018 – Madah

Madah (Eulogy) is a tear jerking production that explores what it means to cherish our family members in spite of their imperfections. Through a series of flashbacks interspersed with reflections from various family members, the audience faces the everyday realities of a grandmother and her family – the happy, angry and frustrating moments. It is ironic that the eventuality of death ignites one’s memory to become alive and the ghosts of the past haunt us to become better individuals who cherish our loved ones.
2015 – Quiet Desperation

Quiet desperations explores the theme of depression. The Drama Club presented a story of a student who had to be transferred out of a prestigious school because he was not able produce good results as he was facing depression. Through his struggles, the audience is persuaded to consider on what it means to play a role in creating a compassionate society.
2012 - Gemuk
