Padbury Catholic held its first-ever Musical Production in 2021, titled The Amazing Adventures of Superstan!
The Musical was open to all Year 5 and 6 students. 46 students joined the cast, with 6 students joining our stage crew.
Auditions took place at the end of Term 1 and rehearsals ran for 14 weeks from the start of Term 2, to early Term 3. In Week 4 of Term 3, the cast performed 4 shows: One Matinee performance for local schools, and then three night performances for the community.
Over 600 tickets were sold to these three shows and the reviews were simply outstanding.
The Musical provided our students with an opportunity that not many Primary Schools are able top provide within the Performing Arts area. We were able to showcase the simply AMAZING acting, dancing and signing talents of our students.
"What an amazing show! Thank you to the school for dabbling in the Arts & investing in this. It was such a great show to watch. We have some very talent students, who are lucky to have the teaching staff back them. Look forward to the next one!"
