Our first opportunity to work in the new Drama Media Music space for the benefit of the whole school community will be this years’ school production of Peter Pan, running from the 2nd to the 4th of May. With a live band, professional staging by the tech crew and some of the school’s most outstanding performers from years 7 to 12, it is not to be missed!
In Term 4 of 2017, students from every year level in the school auditioned for their chance to be a part of the 2018 BHHS Musical – Peter Pan.
We were truly staggered by the sheer number of students who auditioned, over 100, and the high quality of the audition pieces that were performed. We thank all students for their preparation, maturity and talent in this process. Auditioning in itself is a great achievement, and a skill that only improves the more times you attempt it.
Rehearsals have been well underway since Week 1 and it is summing up to be an exciting show! Our student leaders in Lewis Harvey (Assistant Director), Kate Benjamin (Choreographer) and Max Sneddon (Stage Manager) are filling their roles masterfully, making excellent additions to the creative Team of Kaitlyn Trollope (Director), Cally Robinson (Designer), Grace DeBlasio (Music Director) and Toby Wilkins (Producer).
We look forward to sharing this show with the wider school community in Term 2. We will undertake a dress rehearsal performance for Grade 6 students of Laburnum in Week 3, something that has come to be an exciting tradition in recent years.
The show will open on Wednesday 2nd May in BHHS new Performing Arts Precinct. There will be 5 shows in total, with four evening shows and a Saturday matinee as part of the season. Tickets and details will be on sale via the school website in the first week of Term 2. Our shows have sold out in recent years, so get in fast!
‘So come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned. Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings, forever, in Never Never Land’
We can’t wait to share the magic with you.
