The Wizard of Oz

After months of hard work from staff and students alike, our 2014 Blackwater State High School musical was performed on the 8th and 9th of August. Once the nerves were shaken off about the show ‘actually happening’, the cast settled into dedicated rehearsal in preparation for the big nights. With beautiful sets and costumes and a little help from makeup (I think Sharnie is still looking a little green…), Oz was recreated in Blackwater.

Personally, it was really heart-warming to see the cast and crew come together as a family. Friendships were forged between BSHS and students from North and Wey St, brought together with a spirit of cooperation and passion for creating a great musical. Together we honed our skills of performance (diagonals!) both on and off-stage; Adelaide, for instance, is a champion OTT backstage lip-syncer.  Even Mr Kronk soldiered on (quite literally) in his role despite a crippling chicken anxiety.
In the end more than 300 members of our Blackwater community came to our performances, and I’ve heard nothing but positive feedback. It’s fantastic for our students to be able to show off their talent and really show what we can accomplish with effort.

Thank you to the staff and parents who gave up their time, energy and sleep-ins to help make our musical a reality. If you see our cast around the school or community, be sure to give them a pat on the back for their commitment and talent.
