SCEGGS DARLINGHURST

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
A large contingent of SCEGGS students and staff attended the Sunday evening performance of Charlie and The Chocolate Factory last Sunday. For many students this was their first experience of live theatre and were certainly taken on a journey by the performances and stage "magic".

All agreed it was a terrific show and a perfect rendering of the Roald Dahl classic. The unfortunate endings for Augustus Gloop, Veruka Salt, Violet Beuregard and Mike Teevee were deliciously shocking and vital lessons in behaviour.

Stay tuned for another grand theatre excursion to be announced in Term III.

Our production of A Chorus Line was captured brilliantly through rehearsal and production by our photographer Christopher Hayles. He has captured perfectly, moments from the show and in rehearsal.

Saving SCEGGS
On Wednesday and Friday, last week, a most impressive number of 55 students from Years 7 to 10 auditioned for our November production of Saving SCEGGS. Students were led through a group audition by Mr Eyers, Ms Rodda and Ms Goodfellow (our Director). The audition focused on improvisational, creative and performance skills. All auditionees presented themselves with great enthusiasm and ability.

The tough task for the creative team is to now assemble the cast. Many considerations come in to play here; chiefly finding an actor to fit a character and balancing them with the rest of the ensemble. The quality of the auditionees will make this a difficult task and we are very excited about assembling an exciting company.

Casting will be announced in the next edition of Behind the Green Gate in Term III.

A Chorus Line
What an exhilarating season of performances we were witness to during last week’s run of A CHORUS LINE. Audiences were amazed, moved and delighted with the talent expressed by our students on stage and behind the scenes.

Production week is a very taxing experience as the show moves into the theatre and all of the elements come together. We were very proud of the professionalism and skill demonstrated by the company.

The School Musical is an experience like no other and equips the participants with valuable skills and cherished memories. Not only performance and technical skills but the skills to collaborate, problem-solve, broaden a world view and work to deadlines.

An enormous thank you to the Creative Team who supported the students in this journey – Aaron Farley (Director), Nigel Ubrihien (Musical Director), Anna Gardiner (Designer) and Eddi Goodfellow (Lighting and Technical Design).

BTGG 2019 06 06 Drama A Chorus Line Poster

“Music blows lyrics up very quickly, and suddenly they become more than art. They become pompous and they become self-conscious ... I firmly believe that lyrics have to breathe and give the audience's ear a chance to understand what's going on. Particularly in the theater, where you not only have the music, but you've got costume, story, acting, orchestra. There's a lot to take in.”

You have to love dancing to stick to it. It gives nothing back, no manuscripts to store away, no paintings to show on walls and maybe hang in museums, no poems to be printed and sold, nothing but that single, fleeting moment when you feel alive.

  “Truth in theatre is always on the move. As you read this newsletter, it is already moving out of date. it is for me an exercise, now frozen on the page. But unlike this newsletter, the theatre has one special characteristic. It is always possible to start again. In life this is myth, we ourselves can never go back on anything. New leaves never turn, clocks never go back, we can never have a second chance. In the theatre, the slate is wiped clean all the time.”

A Chorus Line
I attended a run of the show in rehearsal last Sunday and was moved by the tremendous passion and skills being employed by our talented cast. We are all in for an enormous treat when the show takes to the stage on June 13.

Participation in a school production requires an investment of much time and energy, especially as we head towards opening. I encourage the cast to prepare themselves for what can be a taxing time in the next few weeks. What can you do to ensure you stay on top of academic requirements? How do you ensure you find adequate rest time? Be attentive in keeping warm and eating food that fuels the body to avoid illness in production week. All this must be considered while focusing on your performance work and being the best story-teller you can be. Finding a balance to all of these is essential.

I share with you some images taken at a rehearsal recently They indicate much joy and learning while navigating the creative process. Photography by Christopher Hayles.

Theatre Club

This Thursday May 9th, the Year 11/12 Theatre Club will be attending Small Mouth Sounds at The Eternity Playhouse in Darlinghurst.

Six runaways from city life embark on a silent meditation retreat. Their vows of silence collide with the achingly human need to connect. Hilariously profound, Bess Wohl’s smash hit transcends language and asks how do we address life’s biggest questions when words fail us?

Amelia Guerreiro-James reports on out last outing to Belvoir Street’s Barbara and The Camp Dogs:

On the last week of Term I, the Theatre Club went to watch Barbara and the Camp Dogs. The play follows the story of Barbara and her “sister” Rene, singers of aboriginal descent who are living in Sydney. Infused with jazz, punk and rock music, this play was a hard-hitting story exploring the true nature of the "Australian identity".

The play highlights the professional, personal and cultural difficulties faced by Barbara and Rene. This starts with their search for a suitable employment and gig and ultimately everything takes a turn for the worst when Rene’s mother, and Barbara’s aunt (who raised her) is dying in Katherine. For Barbara, Katherine represents trauma and as a result she is hesitant to go back. However as highlighted by Rene, she realises that they must go back. The play, whilst being primarily a musical comedy, is emotionally charged as it prompts the audience to question Australia’s national identity. Namely how do we reconcile the national horrors of police brutality against indigenous people, the stolen generation and invasion.

The play explores these difficult topics through moments of tension created by sheer honesty. These moments, in turn were relieved with humour and through audience interaction. The real power of the play is bellied in the fact that these moments of humour however do not diminish the reality of their story. The performances of Elaine Crombie (Rene) and Ursula Yovich (Barbara) were powerful, authentic and sympathetic as they portrayed real women within a “jagged edges” story.

It was a pleasure to go and see this play which supports women and indigenous representation in theatre. The Theatre Club cannot wait to see what term two has in store for us.

Inside The Playhouse
In Term II we are introducing the first of a series titled Inside the Playhouse. The format is a series of conversations with practitioners in the arts and will examine facets of the entertainment industry and roles that may have pertinence to SCEGGS girls past and present. At the conclusion of the conversation, audience members will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A.

The first of these events took place on Monday. Our guest was Actor’s Agent, Mark Morrissey. He presented a very informative talk detailing the professional relationship essential to all performers and provided an indication of pathways to performance as a career.

“All drama must remain on the stage”.

Term II
Welcome back everyone. I trust you had an enjoyable break – and saw some great theatre or film. We look forward to some exciting events for the Drama department during Term II. Here we go...

A Chorus Line – Personnel
We have a new director working on our production of A Chorus Line. Mr Richard Drysdale commenced work on the show, contributing in many ways from audition through to initial blocking. Unfortunately, Richard has had to withdraw to commence new employment that will take him out of Sydney. We thank him for his excellent work on many shows at the School (Time and the Conways, Chicago, Into the Woods, The Crucible, Anything Goes) and wish him every success in his new venture.

Mr Aaron Farley, who has been choreographing the show, will step up to assume leadership of the production and we congratulate him on his appointment as Director for A Chorus Line. Aaron has an excellent knowledge of the show and has established a terrific rapport with the cast.

A Chorus Line plays The Seymour Centre from 13 June - 15 June. Bookings will open on Monday 6 May via this link.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Sunday 23 June
An excursion to the musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has been planned for students in Years 7-10 St Peter’s Players and Academic Drama. This trip to the theatre will take place on Sunday 23 June at 6.00pm. Students will be provided with information letters this week. Keen students are advised to return permission slips in a timely fashion to secure participation.

"Inside the Playhouse" – Monday 6 May
In Term II we are introducing the first of a series titled "Inside the Playhouse" being held in the Lecture Theatre. The format is a series of conversations with practitioners in the arts and will examine facets of the entertainment industry and roles that may have pertinence to SCEGGS girls past and present. At the conclusion of the conversation, audience members will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A.

The first of these events will take place on Monday 6 May at 6.00pm in the Lecture Theatre. Our guest will be Actor’s Agent, Mark Morrissey. Mark will discuss his role in guiding young talent. This will be a perfect opportunity to learn about what an Agent does, how to obtain representation and the professional relationship essential in a performer’s career.

The School community is warmly invited, along with anyone who you may think will find this conversation of interest. Bookings are not required.

The car park will be open from 5.30pm and entry will be through the glass doors on St Peters Street.

All My Sons at Grammar
SCEGGS girls Katarina Kuo and Olivia Doyle are currently in rehearsals for Arthur Miller’s All My Sons. This is a beautiful and tragic play, one of the greats of the American play canon.

The play tells the story of a family that has lost a son, a fighter pilot, during World War II. They are also carrying the burden of a terrible, crippling secret. As is usual with Arthur Miller, the play touches on the alarmingly wide gulf between noble public ideals and petty, private motives.

19 04 11 sons

We’ve seen two professional productions at The Sydney Theatre Company and The Darlinghurst Theatre Company in recent years. We look forward to another engaging production of the play from Grammar.

Bookings are now open through TryBooking. The play runs 9 May - 11 May.

The Phantom of the Opera at Scots.
This week The Scots College open their production of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, The Phantom of the Opera. The production will play the Parade Theatre at NIDA from 1 May - 4 May.

Bookings through Ticketek. Chookas to our students Annika Deitz and Astrid Girdis who are performing in the musical.
