Jesus Christ Superstar
Over 70 students were involved in the classic rock opera written by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber. The production featured some of the most well-known songs in musical theatre and incorporated contemporary attitudes and language that appealed to audiences of all ages.
Jesus Christ Superstar tells the story of the betrayal and crucifixion of Christ and the impact of his death on his disciples. It is a deeply moving story, with the tortured character of Judas at its core.
Students worked closely together with cast members and backstage crew to deliver an outstanding performance in Dalton Hall.
Dean of the Arts at Kilvington, Celia Gall, said they selected Jesus Christ Superstar because it was Andrew Lloyd Webber's best musical. She went on to say, ' The students learned roles with intense characterisation and they performed challenging and exciting songs.'
Bianca Mohan, who played Judas in the musical, enjoyed performing and commented that the cast attended many rehearsals during the week and on weekends. She said, ' I loved rehearsing with the cast and the other leads.' Fellow star Liz Cassar, who played Jesus Christ, enjoyed every minute of her involvement. 'Overall, the production was an amazing experience which brought everyone closer together,' she said.
The Wizard of Oz
One of Kilvington's most lavish and elaborate productions, The Wizard of Oz will be remembered by parents and students for years to come. Just about everyone knows and loves the story of Dorothy, Toto, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Lion, so putting on a production that does justice to this timeless classic is absolutely essential.
