Shakespeare Rocks! (Issue 11 2017)
Written on the 3 August 2017
As part of their class work in Semester 1, the Year 6 Performing Arts classes worked towards presenting a performance of Shakespeare Rocks!, a musical based on the life of William Shakespeare.
Through this, the students learned about the skills and processes required to stage a full musical, including dedication and teamwork, and spent many class (and some lunch) hours rehearsing their singing, acting and choreography. Once the stage lights came on, the entire performance was run by students, with Year 9 students taking on the roles of lighting, vision, sound, stage management and props management.
Thank you to the many who helped put the performance together, and congratulations to the cast of Shakespeare Rocks! for providing such an entertaining evening!
