Each year the College runs a musical production; a full-scale production of a well-known musical play. Students can participate in many areas, including acting, singing, dancing, backstage roles, set construction, lighting and make-up.
The Performing Arts Faculty is very excited to announce the Musical for 2021 will be the Douglas Post musical Wind in the Willows, based on the classic children’s story by Kenneth Graham. We are also super excited to be working with a live band from the Norwood Secondary College Music Department.
Our production will be held at the ‘Karralyka Centre’ Ringwood, for 3 evening performances:
- Thursday, 19 August
- Friday, 20 August
- Saturday, 21 August
Ticketing information will be available end of Term 2, 2021.
Here’s the synopsis: What begins as a peaceful summer on the River is soon disrupted by Toad and his obsession with motorcars. After crashing several cars, he then steals one and lands himself in jail. His friends Mole, Badger, and Water Rat make every effort to protect Toad’s residence, Toad Hall, but are instead ousted by the Ferrets and Weasels of the Wild Wood. Will Toad escape from jail and regain Toad Hall? Will he learn a lesson about his boastful and impetuous ways? A spirited adaptation of a timeless classic.
