It’s a Wrap! 2023 Whole College Musical Delights Audiences

October 23, 2023

After months of preparations, the 2023 College Musical “Bring it On” wowed audiences last weekend over four performances in the new Marnkutyi Parirna Theatre.

The cast, crew and orchestra created a truly unique whole College event, producing a show that was an explosion of colour and movement and featured a host of energetic and memorable tunes that had audience members toe tapping along.

This year, the cast featured 12 principle roles, 14 ensemble players and seven dancers. The cast was supported by a ten-piece student orchestra conducted by Emma Knights. Direction was by Kristy Triantafilakis and Melanie Lavis and choreography was provided by old scholar Caley Watt (2018).

The production has received an outstanding independent review from Brian Godfrey, for the Theatre Association of South Australia who attended the Saturday night performance.

“This production blows one away from the moment the curtain opens, with dazzling optics setting the scene for the energetic ride of a lifetime. It’s exhilarating to see such talent exude from these young adults. In a cast of 33 (12 of whom are principal roles) there is absolutely no weak link!” Read his full review here.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the 2023 production, you should all be pleased and proud to have created such a successful, entertaining and memorable show. Special thanks also to all the teachers, parents and wider community who contributed to such a fabulous musical!
