From the Arts Academy Awards Red Carpet to Winners

The 2017 Arts Academy Awards was held on Saturday 16 September, in the Sheldon Event Centre, in-front of an audience of over 800 people. This annual event recognises the best of Sheldon College student works across all Senior College art forms and incorporates the award ceremony for the student nominees from Visual Art, Music, Vocal Studies, Acting, Dance and Film, Television and New Media.

This year, over 300 singers, dancers and musicians took to the stage in performances which were nothing short of spectacular; while the stunning lighting and audio visual production was provided by students from the Australian School of the Arts' Film, Television and New Media Program.

Notable performances included ‘I Will Always Love You’, ‘Africa’, ‘Incomplete’ and a wonderful ‘Mary Poppins’ medley – a nod to Sheldon College’s highly successful 2017 musical. A definite highlight of the evening was ‘When We Were Young’, an Adelle song, performed by teacher Miss Rachel Head, Year 12 Female Vocalists (Eve), the Arts Academy Show Choir and the Arts Academy Band. Another highly popular item was "Somebody to Love", performed by our incredibly talented and much loved Arts Staff.

Mr Darren Harvey, Sheldon College Director of the Australian School of the Arts said “Tonight is a great example of what is possible when students believe in something and work hard towards achieving that goal. With the right guidance these students are capable of artistic feats that even they did not know was possible. Tonight was a true example of hybrid arts in action.”

Just Dance 2017

Just Dance 2017

On Saturday 17 June, Sheldon College presented their annual dance extravaganza, Just Dance. Performances featured students from the ASTA Dance Academy, ASTA Professionals Program, Classroom Dance, the Senior College Choreography Competition and the Senior College Musical, Mary Poppins. The 2017 Prefects and selected Staff also joined in to compete in a dance-off. A range of dance genres and styles were displayed including jazz, ballet, contemporary, lyrical and hip hop.

The event was proudly brought home to the Sheldon Event Centre for the first time this year, as part of the College’s 20 Year Celebrations. Previous Dance Captains, who have been responsible for shaping and leading the dance program at Sheldon College, were invited back to enjoy the show and 2015 Alumnus, Travis Johnson, spoke on their behalf about the way in which dance, and teaching dance, has impacted his life beyond school.

The annual 'Get Dancing' Award, in memory of Chloe Saunders, was presented to Year 6 student Elise McKillop during the Evening Show. This award is presented to a Sheldon College student who demonstrates, beyond everything else, a passion for dance.

Musical 2017

"Practically perfect in every way…" is a precisely accurate five-word review of The Australian School of the Arts' production of Mary Poppins, The Broadway Musical.   Weekend Notes On-line Review

The Australian School of the Arts celebrated 20 years of Musical Theatre this year, with our production of the Broadway Musical ‘Mary Poppins’. The two-week season at Redlands Performing Arts Centre sold out in just days, leaving us with no choice but to add an additional performance to meet demand.

The show involved so many firsts for The Australian School of the Arts - our longest season, biggest audience, first time with a digitally projected set, first time using a theatrical flying rig, and also our largest cast requiring over 300 costumes.

The show received excellent local and national reviews including the prestigious theatre publication Stage Whispers. Audiences were amazed at the professional standard of our young performers, with many ranking it on a par with high budget professional touring shows.
