The 2018 College Production of Villain School is coming together at a rapid pace. The following developments have taken place over the last couple of weeks:
– Students are beginning to put their scripts away and start experimenting with characteristics and expression with some awesome results. We are very lucky to have such a creative cast.
– Chloe Ryan (Year 12) along with Mrs Azzopardi and Miss Pratt have done a fantastic job in sourcing our colourful costumes, many of which have arrived already. We will be doing a character photo shoot next week!
– Plans have been put in place for our most technically ambitious production yet with new lighting and effects as well as a re-worked staging concept.
– Mr Matt Smyth will be hard at work next week putting our set pieces together, giving us the chance to rehearse with full set and props from Week 1 next Term.
Cast and Staff will be heading off to the Swan Valley Adventure Centre for Production Camp this weekend for an intensive two days of rehearsals and team building activities. This was a fantastic experience for students during the last whole College production and we look forward to what is set to be a fun and rewarding weekend. We will be very lucky to have former student and current Australian Performing Arts Network student Max Hughes joining us on the camp to run character and performance workshops with the students.
