"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.
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”.
‘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.
