About School Productions
Each year, the Arts Department embarks on a whole school production where students across all year levels are given the opportunity to showcase their talents both onstage and behind the scenes. The productions are coordinated by the Arts Head of Department, Mrs Peta Tabuteau.
Highlights from past Productions
In 2017, the Arts Department presented their adaption of 'The Snow Queen' based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen. The story follows the tale of Gerda who sets out to find her brother, Kaye, when he disappears. However, unknown to Gerda, the sad and lonely Snow Queen has kidnapped him to be the son she has always wanted.
With guidance from the Arts Department, students showcased their dancing, singing and acting talents, which provided them with the opportunity to develop their performance skills within a stage setting.
In 2019, the Arts Department showcased their much-anticipated Arts Spectacular, which involved all areas of the Arts including Dance, Drama, Music, Media, Visual Arts and Instrumental Music. The production attracted over 600 audience members to two nights of dazzling entertainment. The production was a colourful and energetic display, featuring 200 students from the Performing and Creative Arts.
The program featured an impressive line-up of acts including performances by the Craigslea Vocal and Music programs, Craigslea Dance Company (CDC), Drama, and Film, Television and New Media students. The finale presented an inspiring rendition of Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now" which proved to be a highlight of the night.
In 2021, we are excited to present the 'Little Shop of Horrors' on April 21, 22 and 23, which follows a geeky florist shop worker who finds out his Venus flytrap can speak.
With an average cast of 100+ students and rehearsals out of school hours, these are time-consuming activities that could not go ahead without substantial community support. We are very grateful for the team of dedicated parents/caregivers who so willingly give their time and services, from sewing costumes, to helping with fundraising activities or providing contacts for building materials, etc.
If you would like to assist in anyway or have any questions regarding the event, please email email@example.com.
