Osaka School of Music Visit 2016

Sheldon College and the Australian School of the Arts (ASTA), recently played host to over 70 Arts students from the Osaka, Tokyo and Fukuoka Schools of Music as part of their annual visit to Queensland. Whilst on campus the visiting students enjoyed a range of music, dance and vocal ensemble workshops culminating in a concert with ASTA students from the Combined Performing Arts Professionals Program. The concert program featured a range of performances including hip hop, musical theatre, rock, J-Pop and ensemble harmony singing.

This event is a highlight for the ASTA students and was another successful collaboration of Arts practice between the two countries.



Musical 2016

We are pleased to announce that our 2016 Senior College Musical is ‘The Addams Family’.  All performances will be presented at the Redland Performing Arts Centre (RPAC) in Cleveland and tickets will go on general sale from Wednesday 23 March 2016.

It’s a dismal day at the Addams family’s mansion, with the ever-approaching storm clouds reflecting the gloomy atmosphere that has beset the household. Daughter Wednesday, now eighteen years old, has found herself experiencing a surprising new sensation, one that frightens both her and her family: she has fallen in love. Lucas Beineke, the object of her affections, comes from a seemingly normal family, and he and his parents Mal and Alice are on their way to the Addams’ estate to become better acquainted with the family over dinner. Brother Pugsley, who has been largely ignored since Wednesday’s involvement with Lucas, begins to miss the attention his sister previously paid to him and pleads with her to torture him once more. Meanwhile, mother Morticia finds herself conflicted over her ever-maturing daughter’s newfound feelings, while oblivious father Gomez simply wishes things would remain the way they were. As they learn to relate to the Beinekes and cope with Wednesday’s romance, one thing is certain: the Addams family will never be the same.

2015 Arts Academy Awards

Another entourage of students is bound for stage stardom after stealing the show at the 11th Annual Arts Academy Awards on Saturday 19 September. Staged to coincide with Hollywood’s Academy Awards, this year’s brilliant instalment saw more than 300 singers, dancers and musicians raise the roof off the Sheldon Event Centre.

Seasoned song and dance man Travis Johnson capped a stellar season of excellence when he was named 2015 Actor of the Year and the Year 12 student was back on the podium a short time later to accept another award as the 2015 Dancer of the Year. However fellow Year 12 Student Manali Datar scooped the pool when she was named Actress of the Year, won the Senior Cultural Award and then the major annual award, the prestigious Gold Award.

Sheldon College Captain Matthew Copley added another accolade to his burgeoning resume of scholastic excellence when he was named the Instrumentalist of the Year while at the end of the spectrum, April Beak was named Best Emerging Artist of the Year.

Triad Studios won the Production Group of the Year category while the highly sought after Director of the Year trophy went to Adam Shaw. Bronwyn Myers was named Interdisciplinary Media Artist of the Year and Charlotte Balfour secured 2D Multi-Media Artist of the Year.

Emerging star Axel Duffy was acknowledged for his brilliant work throughout 2015 when he was named Male Vocalist of the Year and his partner in rhyme, Jaimee Godfrey was named Female Vocalist of the Year.

Jenna Rainbird won the Middle Cultural Award and Laura Dower won the ASTA Award for Excellence.

Congratulations to all of our 2015 Award recipients.
