This year, year 12 students Ethan O’Donovan has taken on the role of Musical Director, a very important role in the show. Ethan has put together a band comprising of students and teachers and has been leading rehearsals on Wednesday afternoons. Ethan has also been running vocal rehearsals with the cast, and the students involved have learnt a lot from him and appreciated his passion and encouragement.
Madina Nabole, Dance Captain, has been leading dance warm ups and run-throughs and Georgina Shepley, as Production Assistant has been showing her leadership through arriving at rehearsals early to assist with setting up, and staying late to pack up. Soon Cameron Symes, Marketing Assistant, will begin organising some fundraising and marketing activities.
On election day a group of committed students and parents came in to school to assist with cooking and serving some democratic sausages in bread. Their teamwork was excellent and they were excellent ambassadors for the school on the day. They raised $500 to go towards paint for sets.
The backstage and set team have also been working hard with Ms Lindy Brants to design and paint sets for the production. I can’t wait to see their finished designs under lights in August.
All students and staff involved in the show are to be commended for their hard work and dedication. This year the school production will be held at Killara Primary School and performances will be held August 8th, 9th and 10th(matinee).
