The next few weeks sees the Department consolidating its rehearsals in order to have as much in place prior to the student examination session.

High School Musical cast at Musical Camp

Rehearsals, Somerset Actors Studio and Tech Crew

This is just a quick reminder to all students regarding rehearsals and meetings. As this term is a little fractured with public holidays and various examinations, students need to keep in mind their responsibilities regarding rehearsals and meetings. Notification of times and any changes are placed on Schoolbox, with each day clearly marked, which can be viewed on the various DVC screens around the College as well as being posted on the notice boards in the Performing Arts Centre. Students must ensure that they access this information through the various means available. If students are uncertain of times, please contact the staff member through the appropriate email channels.

Any queries can also be passed through to Mrs Sue Roberts for music matters and Mrs Katrina Fisher for drama matters.

Senior Musical Camp

Last weekend our High School Musical cast headed off to Natural Arch for their annual camp. Please click on this link for a Year 12 perspective on the weekend.

Upcoming Events

On Saturday 11 June a variety of workshops (with opportunities for private lessons) will be offered at the College as an adjunct to the Somerset Festival for Young Performers. The places in these workshops are strictly limited. Workshops on offer include Piano, Violin, Speech and Drama, Clarinet, Flute, Saxophone, Voice, Trumpet, Lower Brass and Cello. They are open to students of all ages, through to Year 12. For information regarding the workshops please click here with information regarding the tutors at this link here. These workshops are not limited to just the students from Somerset College, all students are welcome.

A Plea

The Senior Musical this year requires many of the cast to have lab coats. If any members of the College Community have a lab coat or two hanging in cupboard collecting dust, we will happily find them a new home. It does not matter what state of repair they are in. Any donations can be dropped to Mrs Roberts office in the PA.

Past Performances

On Thursday, the College commemorated ANZAC Day. Thanks must go to the Brass Ensemble and the Show Choir for their contribution to service. Thanks must also go to Duncan Hossy for his playing of the Last Post and Rouse. Always a daunting task but handled with great aplomb. Well done, Duncan.
