On 7 March, last Saturday, CHAC held its annual Open Day. Arts students and teachers were glad to see so many prospective CHAC families, with tours keeping the visual art, drama and music displays and performances packed. Students also performed a range of music from the balcony of the Auditorium to entertain the constant crowd there. A huge thank you must go out to all the students and staff who helped out on the day, showcasing our busy and vibrant Arts Department.
La Boite theatre visit
Two weeks ago, the Years 11 and 12 drama students were lucky enough to attend a moving production called The Neighbourhood at the La Boite roundhouse. This play successfully managed to educate and touch the senior students as it showcased the life stories and experiences of immigrant Australians. It included stories of racism, discrimination, adaption and fleeing.
Year 10 Drama presentation
The Year 10 drama class has once again been working with the theatre company Zen Zen Zo for their end of term class production. This year, they have devised a contemporary performance titled It’s Like Deja Vu. The class is excited to showcase their performing skills in two weeks time. All are welcome to attend this world premiere on Tuesday 24 March in the drama studio (117) at 7pm.
Music Extension recital
The talented students of the Year 12 Music Extension class will be presenting a lunchtime concert on Friday 27 March in Studio A. Everyone is welcome to what will be a captivating concert.
Year 10 Theatresports Evening
On 3 March, 24 brave young improvisers took to the stage to demonstrate their creative quick thinking and characterisation skills in front of a public audience of friends and family. Competing for elusive chocolate bar prizes, each team demonstrated their improvisational talents and teamwork through a selection of games. The audience cheered and laughed and even booed the mean judge ensuring a fun night was had by all. A special thanks to Matt Stoward for being the night's Emcee. Well done Year 10 Improvisers!
