FAME - The Musical

On the 21st and 22nd August 2013, 'Fame -The Musical' was staged in the Heath Ledger Theatre, at the State Theatre Centre of WA. Planning for the production began late in 2012 with auditions and casting underway in the first few weeks of the year. This year's musical showcased the talent of over 100 students from both the Middle and Senior Schools, with the students involved being thrilled to be the first school to perform at this prestigious venue. Thank you to all the staff, students and friends of the College who offered their time, commitment, enthusiasm, support and words of encouragement throughout the journey. It was a team effort to produce 'Fame-The Musical' and an exceptionally rewarding experience for all involved.

Performing

As a performer, being involved in 'Fame' has been an incredible experience, which has further opened my eyes to the wonderful world of acting and performing. As well as being an amazing experience and privilege to perform on stage in such a prestigious venue, 'Fame' also brought many other opportunities to the table. We were able to meet and work with people we had never worked with before, and were able to create relationships and bonds with fellow cast members that will last a lifetime. None of us could possibly thank all the teachers involved enough for the journey that they have taken us on and the success that they have led us to, but we hope they were able to watch what they had put all their time and hard work into and be proud that we had all given it our absolute everything.

Set and Props

Since the start of this calendar year, along with many others, we were privileged to help paint the sets and props that were used in 'Fame -The Musical'. It's been a great experience; we've all developed our painting skills and had loads of fun in the process, the highlight being getting covered in paint while hand-printing the bins. It was a rewarding experience to watch the performance and to take pride in the sets we'd painted.
