The College annual production is a huge commitment not only in terms of the many hours of rehearsal, set and costume construction, but also through the resourcing required to support all aspects of the show, so I would also like to thank the parents and friends of our performers who supported us through their attendance at the shows. Feedback from the performances has consistently recognised the professionalism and entertainment value of this year’s production and is a reflection of the experience and commitment of our Performing Arts staff.
Suzanne Reinhardt, College Principal.
2016 – The Drowsy Chaperone
In 2016 we produced the Tony award winning production, The Drowsy Chaperone!
A die-hard musical theatre fan invites us into his dreary living room. As he drops the needle on his all-time favourite album, an outrageously funny musical from the 1920s, The Drowsy Chaperone, bursts into life – complete with a pampered starlet, gangsters, chorus girls and all manner of mayhem. Don’t miss out on the fun – audition for what promises to be an amazing & fun experience.
Congratulations to all students that participated. The show received a standing ovation on Opening night, and just got better and better, with children and adults raving about how much they enjoyed it. Thank you to all staff, parents and friends who volunteered their time and effort and who helped contribute to this huge production.
2015 – Little Shop of Horrors
“Feed me, Seymour!”
This horror, rock, comedy came to life at the college. Composed by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, Little Shop of Horrors is about a hapless florist shop worker who raises a plant that feeds on human blood and flesh. The musical is based on the low-budget 1960 black comedy film of the same name.
2014 – Beauty and the Beast
Sandringham went all Disney in 2014 with a wonderful production of Beauty and the Beast.
Based on the French fairy tale of the same name by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, Beauty and the Beast focuses on the relationship between the Beast, a prince who is magically transformed into a monster as punishment for his arrogance, and Belle, a young woman whom he imprisons in his castle.
2013 – Seussical
Yes, truely this is a musical!
Based on the works of the great Dr. Seuss-ical
Or maybe it’s just a show about snoozicles?
I’m not really sure.
