GREASE - STUNNING THE AUDIENCES!
The performances of our musical Grease have been stunning the audiences since Wednesday. It really is a quality production that has you wondering whether they are really school students in all the roles (except one) or are they professionals brought in for the show! I know that I am obviously biased but I have heard many similar comments over the past few days as audiences file out of the Griffith Regional Theatre. My wholehearted congratulations to everyone involved. It really is a large scale operation with not only about 100 Marian students and staff involved each night but also many volunteers back and front of stage helping in costume, make-up and hair, programmes and everything else that is needed for a show to be successful.
I had a conversation with one of the audience members this morning, Mr Neville Dwyer, Director of Griffith Child Care Centre. Neville wrote a piece about our show and it is with his permission that I have included it in this week's newsletter. It encapsulates the core of what we do as educators. In schools, we are involved in helping to develop people and what a privilege it is! We give our best (as teachers) and we mix our talents with the talents of our students and in front of our eyes a beautiful person is discovering life for themselves! As teachers, we are nourished by the work we do and being surrounded by energetic, dedicated and creative students and staff is a blessing.
Please refer to the newsletter for more great photos of the production - both on stage and behind the scenes!
