This year’s school production, Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’, wrapped up in the last week of Term 2.
Our students worked tirelessly over the first two terms to bring together this masterpiece. The production was a great success over two huge nights. It started with a warm welcome of guests into our historic Mansion dining room for nibbles and entertainment from our College Band, before being led into the antique beauty of the Ballroom, where the play was recreated in an authentic setting for the audience to enjoy.
This year we had a strong group of lead performers, many who have been in productions since their junior years at the College. Max Irwin, James Dillon and Michaela Frantz were given their final bows with us, each giving wonderful performances as their respective characters of Jack Worthing, Algernon Moncrieff and Lady Bracknell.
Also in senior lead roles we had Nikita Daicos, Rick Daicos, Nicole Brideson and Izaac Chatfield, who were all able to shine brightly on stage with excellent comedic timing and flair.
We were able to introduce two of our up-and-coming leads to the community, with Ashleigh Macken (Year 9) and Zac Preaudet-Sartori (Year 8). They both proved that our strong tradition of Performing Arts is in safe hands with the next generation of students.
Our ensemble group was also a highlight of the event, leaving the audience in fits of laughter as they performed their self-devised advertisements. The production team would also like to recognise Edith Spiers (Yr 12), who has been key to the success of each major production at the College over the last five years.'
We would also like to extent our thanks to the Sunbury community. Your ongoing support of our College enables our students to perform and showcase their talents.
A production of any size does not come together easily or quickly. The College would like to recognise and thank the members of the production team. They worked countless hours to get the best out of the students and give them a wonderful experience.
Thanks to the members of the cast, crew and band for their dedication and passion in the Performing Arts. Your wonderful energy and professionalism make each show amazing.
