We are pleased to announce that the ASTA Drama Academy will be hosting their annual Showcase on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 November. 2016 has been an exciting year for the Academy with the addition of two extra ‘production groups’ to the Program as well as the regular classes. We are excited to not only be performing “Shrek Jr” as our Year 7 & 8 Musical for this year, but also “James and the Giant Peach” and “Circus Olympus”.
Performance Details & Show Times
‘James and the Giant Peach’ has been a wonderful opportunity for selected students from Prep to Year 6 to work collaboratively to produce this wonderful children’s classic story. Our Year 5 & 6 students have taken on a leadership role throughout the process which has been a wonderful challenge for all students involved.
‘Circus Olympus’ has been an opportunity for students in Year 7 & 8 who have a keen interest in Acting to explore and push their skills in a very focused environment. The students have experimented with their physicality and have been pushed to learn lines and create strong characters in this quirky, Greek inspired tale.
‘Shrek the Musical’ has seen a large group of Year 7 & 8 students push themselves into new avenues this year once again. They have worked on performance skills across voice, acting and dance and are looking forward to bringing you the high energy production of Shrek. This loveable movie series has been transformed into an entertaining Musical including all the characters we know and love and the students have worked incredibly hard this year combining all three areas of singing, acting and dancing to bring you a fantastic junior interpretation of this piece.
