A musical feast for the soul

​“There’s going to be a musical!”, proclaims Richmont High’s teacher, played by the wonderful and talented Year 12 theatre student Anna Madrigal. 

Its fair to say a QACI musical has been long awaited, proven by the full theatre audience on Thursday and Friday night.

Richmont High is an original production, with a mix of songs ranging from the classics such as Carousel and Chicago, as well modern shows like Dear Evan Hanson and High School musical. Disney also didn’t miss out, with the all the favourite princesses and some making an appearance!

QACI's enrichment 'musical theatre' group certainly didn’t disappoint.  The audience sang along to all their favourites such as the time warp from Rocky Horror, and there were plenty of one line laughs scattered throughout the show.

The performance followed the story of Richmont High School who finally decides it is time to put on a musical. The story was filled with romance, classic ballads and of course some fabulously strong dance routines.

Collaboratively during timetabled enrichment lessons, students put together the show's storyline, and directed their own musical numbers and scenes. Every student also put in valuable time of their own to ensure the show ran smoothly.

Congratulations to the entire cast of Richmont High, as well as Ms Morris, Ms Place and Ms Freeman for such a great production. 

QACI is already buzzing for the next performance - perhaps we've started something BIG!
