‘West Side Story’ Surpasses All Expectations

Sheldon College has once again lifted the bar for the standard of school musicals in Queensland with their latest stunning contemporary presentation of the classic “West Side Story” at the Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC).

Over 2,000 audience members were unanimous in their standing ovations and feedback to the College on the unparalleled professionalism of the musical theatre performance. A cast and crew of over 120 students delivered on what is widely regarded as the most difficult of Broadway musicals to present in a school setting. Some outstanding reviews were posted online about the show, and there was significant social media coverage during the performance week. It was another inspiring achievement from the Sheldon College Community and in particular the students of the Australian School of the Arts who provided many of the lead roles.

"These students far surpassed mine and more importantly their own expectations with this show. Their ability to deal with such a mature storyline and present it in such a way that left their audience in tears is a real tribute to the hours of hard work they put in on a weekly basis. Students were looking forward to being able to extend their experience and new skills gained during the musical as they settled back into their curriculum studies".Director/Producer - Darren Harvey

The decision for a 2015 musical will be made leading up to the Annual Arts Academies Awards on Saturday 20 September 2014.

‘Hairspray the Musical’ Wows the Redlands

Sheldon College’s 2013 production of “Hairspray the Musical” opened on Wednesday 1 May 2013 to a sold out audience and finished with a spontaneous standing ovation after every show at the Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC).

The cast of 75 students delivered on every level with a simply brilliant performance, ably backed up by a hardworking media team, backstage crew and pit band. Over 130 students from Sheldon College were involved in the production, with the majority of key roles being played by students from The Australian School of the Arts program. The industry level Arts training available to students at the College was certainly evidenced by all in attendance on opening night, with many guests commenting on the consummate professionalism of the actors, musicians and dancers on stage.

“The response to the show from the school family network and the wider Redlands community has been amazing. The 2013 Sheldon College production of Hairspray represents the benchmark for musical theatre and Arts hybrid performance for secondary schools in Qld”Darren Harvey, Director Australian School of the Arts

The entire season of performances was sold out and there was also a free ticket community engagement matinee performance on Friday 3 May attended by school groups from across the Redlands and Moreton Bay islands, as well as special interest community groups. For many of these attendees, it was their first visit to RPAC and for some it was their first musical theatre performance. Some of the school groups used the performance as stimulus material for classroom discussion and responding.

The students at Sheldon College and the Australian School of the Arts are now back to their usual scholastic routine, but will carry the memories of an amazing week of Arts performance for many years to come.
