The curtain has now fallen on the 2016 Junior School Production, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe but not before it captured the hearts of the privileged audiences that attended the visually captivating production.
Alice Durham (Peter), Hana O’Neill (Susan), Sienna Predl (Edmund) and Isabelle Treasure (Lucy) played the roles of four children who embark on a journey through Narnia. Ellie Webster played the role of the White Witch and Rachael Taylor played Aslan the Lion, King of the Land. The supporting cast contributed greatly, each providing convincing credibility to their individual characters. The two chorus groups added energy, vitality and fun to the production.
The cast included 75 Junior School Drama students from Prep to Year 6, all of which demonstrated great stage presence, confidence and an abundance of talent. This high standard of performance came as a result of masterful direction on behalf of their Drama teacher, Ms Hannah Sutherland.
The production was visually outstanding providing the audience with a 4D experience through the addition of falling snow. The sets and backdrops, props and costumes made Narnia a truly magical place thanks to Mrs Samantha Allen, Mrs Theresa Pearson and the hard working members of the MOCCHA Club. Thank you also to Ms Bernadette Jarvis, the many staff members and parents that assisted front of house, back stage and during rehearsals.
The Junior School Drama Production was a tremendous success and a memorable experience that will remain with the students and audiences for a long time to come.
