This term sees our budding actors from St Clare’s and Waverley Colleges, tread the boards of the Br R.J.Wallace Performing Arts Centre stage in our exciting school production of Louis Nowra’s, Cosi.
Opening night is only six weeks away, on Tuesday, 7 June, so rehearsals are well and truly underway. Our students have been learning their lines, learning how their characters speak and move, as well as how they interact with each other.
Our wonderful set designer and set builder, Peter Mussared, is in the theatre this week building the set. At the beginning of the process, at a very early production meeting, Peter Lamb the director, discussed his vision for the play, i.e. that he wanted to present this classic Australian play in the era in which it was intended: the 1970s. So the set, costumes, hairstyles, etc are fun, as they do accurately reflect a time capsule from the 1970s! Our cast are excited to get onto the set in the next couple of weeks, to fully work within the world of the play.
Our lucky VET Entertainment students are able to observe this process, and they will be working on the show in technical areas such as: stage management, audio, staging and lighting. This is an internal work placement for the boys, and after the COVID-19 pandemic, where they have not been able to get out to Entertainment Industry work sites, it is such a necessary and relevant experience for them.
I’d like to thank Ms Jaz Dolso for her ongoing work with the ensemble, who are learning a Split Enz song called ‘That Was My Mistake.’
