2019 School Production
It’s with great excitement that we announce the 2019 School Production:
Rock of Ages – Friday 14 & Saturday 15 June
This production has been adapted by the author and iTheatrics to create a version that is accessible for high school students.
It’s the tail end of the 1980s and a time of hard rock, heavy metal and aspiring stars wandering the Sunset Strip in Hollywood. But the rock and roll lifestyle is about to end when German developers are keen to turn the Strip into a shopping mall. Can Drew, Sherri and the gang save the strip? Only the music of hit bands Styx, Journey, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Night Ranger, REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar, Twisted Sister, and more hold the answer.
Student involvement – Years 7, 8 & 9
It is also with great excitement that we announce that students from Years 7, 8 and 9 are invited to audition for onstage roles. These roles will involve students singing, dancing and acting on stage to a live audience.
