In September 2017 we launched the auditions for the whole school production of Peter Pan.
70 students attended and auditioned for a main part in the show. From Year 13 right down to the new Year 7’s. We knew from that moment that it was going to be a good show year as the students showed their appreciation and respect for every single person in the room that evening. We then had the hard job of putting the show together. Every Monday after school we would rehearse until 6.00pm, the students giving it their all and performing to their maximum potential. Show week fasted approached and before we knew it we had done an eventful technical rehearsal and was on to the dress rehearsal. On the 12th March 2018 we had 270 people in Tylers Hall for the dress rehearsal, this included two local primary schools, TVS and the local community of senior citizens. The team of red shirts were amazing and represented the school well. Wednesday 14th March to Saturday 17th March saw the performances to parents, friends, students and staff. The cast were so professional every night and supported each other in every way they could. They became a family throughout the process and I know are missing each other this week. ‘What do I do now without Peter Pan?’
Peter Pan could not have been successful without the support of many staff members. Thank you to all of those that were involved in putting the show together, from lighting and staging, to ticket selling to sorting out back stage, to playing the piano constantly, to setting up chairs to making props, to moving the detentions so we could use the space. Thank you to you all and a big thank you to all the parents, friends, students and staff that came to watch the show.
Amazing job to the cast of Peter Pan 2018!
