Into the Woods hits musical a high note
The College campus is still buzzing from the euphoria of what has been hailed by the audiences as the most amazing musical to date – Into the Woods!
The talented student cast, colourful costumes, superb sets and brilliant College Orchestra were exceptional!
Director and College Drama teacher Mr Bradley Chapman said when he joined Saint Stephen’s College in July last year he had been hesitant when asked by the Performing Arts Department to direct such a challenging musical.
“Later that week, however, I attended a school assembly at which students performed an assortment of instrumental and vocal numbers. I was so impressed with the level of musical talent that I returned to the Performing Arts Department that afternoon and insisted on taking charge of the production,” he said.
“A Stephen Sondheim musical is no easy feat for performers. It requires a level of musical dexterity that eludes even many professionals. Fortunately, I was blessed with a cast and musicians that were already ready and willing to take the challenges presented by the musical head on.
“Our lead actors have demonstrated a level of commitment, passion and dedication to this performance, the like of which I have never before encountered in a school production.
“A special thanks to all those who have contributed to the development of this production.”« Back to Index
