The Performing Arts Showcase last week featured the best work from Year 11 and 12 Drama and Music students, plus a performance by the Year 10 Dance class.
Year 12 Drama students presented their practical exam scripted and original monologues, and did an exceptional job of performing developed characters from classic Greek theatre to contemporary Australian theatre. Year 11 Drama students presented a montage excerpt of their production of Girl Who Cried Wolf, a play about when high school lies spin out of control. They used a range of techniques to present the play, including video projection, minimal costumes and playing multiple characters.
Year 11 and 12 Music students presented solo works from their practical exam performance repertoire. Musical pieces were varied and ranged from flute, cello, piano and drum solos, to vocal performances of jazz, Scottish folk and opera. The music performances were of a very high standard showing mastery of technical skills required in modern and Western Art genres.
The dance performance was choreographed and organised by Year 10 Dance students as part of their entry in the Youth on Health competition, in which they had to create a dance about Resilience. This performance involved Year 7-12 students, and showed great skill from a large range of dancers.
A wonderful turn out of parents and friends made the evening even more memorable, as they discussed the enjoyment of watching students perform. Thank you to all the teachers and staff who contributed towards the event. Thank you to all those who attended the Showcase, we look forward to your support in the future.
