The season of Spamalot concluded at TAPAC Theatre and what a show it was! Full of amazing talent in comedy, incredible music and tunes, innovative dance and drama, wonderful costumes and set… no wonder each performance sold out! Students of all years performed incredibly in all their roles and were led by a wonderful lead cast – the laughter, the smiles; the cheers from the audience were all so well earned!
Stage Challenge is a wonderful leadership opportunity for senior students to initiate and produce a production for students across all years.
WSCPROUD was driven by an outstanding leadership team and crew that worked tirelessly to make sure that everything was meticulously planned from dance through to costumes and set.
Unity was evident as our team collaborated to tell a story of pride.
