Return to the Forbidden Planet - Musical An Outstanding Success
The College Musical for 2014 was a rousing success, with over 280 students from the Junior and Senior schools involved in the four productions.
On Wednesday afternoon, the students presented their dress rehearsal to community members at a charity matinee. The enthusiasm of both the students and audience provided an electric atmosphere for all involved and inspired the cast to lift even further for the evening performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
A sincere thank you must go to all of the on-stage, band, backstage, front-of-house and creative crew students for their dedication to the production; the lovely volunteer parents who assisted with costuming, make-up and hair styling; the kind and patient staff who assisted with student supervision; the Parents and Friends who provided refreshments during intermission; and the amazing staff of the Performing Arts Faculty, who worked so hard as a team to create such an energetic and rewarding experience for our students.
