The school is situated on a hilltop in a historic Barrhaven residential neighbourhood. Lieutenant Colonel John Alexander McCrae, MD, a Canadian literary figure and physician who authored the iconic war memorial poem "In Flanders Fields" during World War I, is the school's namesake.
Every alternate year, the school used to put on a performance. "Lucky Stiff," "Zombie Prom," "High School Musical," "The Butler Did It Singing," and "Back to the 80s" were among the plays performed in previous years. The school's last musical, "Hair The Musical," was staged in 2015.
At John McCrae, an intro course will equip students with a lot of chances to learn about the theatrical arts and themselves. Participants explore the key principles of each dramatic form and are able to execute a sample as a concluding exercise after an introduction to a range of dramatic forms (Tableau, Chorus, etc.).
The learners are then guided through the process of developing genuine and rich personalities. Afterward, students perform a character speech, which allows them to test out their creativity in a public setting.
Following that, learners participate in tiny (2–3 actor) pre-written plays, studying how to bring a character made by someone else to reality using the actor's capabilities and knowledge.
Finally, students take part in a big group presentation of a one-act drama, which enables every individual to put their acting abilities to use. At the same time, students get a taste of all of the other components that go into putting on a full-scale show. This course concludes with a student favourite that is sure to get everyone laughing.
