An exuberant ensemble of 120 cast, crew and pit band members brought an extraordinary 2023 College musical to life across four performances in front of packed audiences at the Hopgood Theatre.
With myriad opportunities for artistic and personal growth, the preparation was joy-filled, relentless and also very rewarding. Students supported one another each step of the way and combined their work ethic, dedication, passion, talent, skills, playfulness and discipline to deliver an outstanding production. Not only that, but their involvement is sure to have created lasting memories that will forever be remembered a highlight of their Concordia days.
The closing paragraph of the Director's report provides a wonderful summary of the show and what was achieved by our amazing students this year:
"With a score of Elvis songs, beautifully recrafted, and a narrative inspired by Shakepeare’s brilliant romantic comedies, our students have embedded legendary work in their artistic DNA. They have embraced the themes of humanity and love, and fulfilled their responsibility to engage an audience, to entertain and inspire."
Well done to all involved, whether on stage or behind the scenes - you truly did engage, entertain and inspire, and it was a joy to witness.
