On Monday 18 February, the Drama Department hosted another Live Theatre Masterclass for interested secondary school students. After the success of the Masterclass with Mat Verevis, in 2018 (https://www.ormistoncollege.com.au/news/live-theatre-masterclass-with-mat-verevis), I’m pleased to say a group of dedicated Performing Arts students presented either a polished monologue or song in order to receive feedback on their work. Ellen provided thoughtful and constructive advice for each student including technique tips as well as strategies for pursuing the creative industries. Ellen was also able to share anecdotes from her time as a Grand Finalist on Channel 9’s “The Voice” and a judge on Channel 7’s “All Together Now!”
It was wonderful to see several parents and friends attend the Masterclass to support each performer. Some students elected to also observe the Masterclass and take notes. In this sense, the afternoon was an instructive opportunity for both audience and performers alike.
