Ormiston Creates: The Greatest Show
Ormiston Students Dazzle On Stage
Our Foundation – Year 6 students took to the stage in week 5 of Term 3 to perform, Ormiston Creates: The Greatest Show. Written, produced and directed by our very own Kath Buckingham, this charming performance saw each year level perform to an enthusiastic audience over two evenings.
The production followed Bernie and her friends as they travelled around the world on a trip of a lifetime. Unfortunately, not everything went to plan as Bernie and her buddies did find themselves pushed out of their comfort zones as they travelled through weird and wonderful lands.
Choreographed by old grammarian, Millie Leaver and current Year 10 student, Lauren Bignold, Ormiston Creates had students showing off their dance moves and singing voices to a very supportive and excited audience.
Many crowd favourites were heard, with the Year 2’s performing ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’, the Year 5’s – ‘Surfin’ USA’ and the Year 3’s – ‘The Purple People Eater’ to name just a few. Staff stepped out of the classroom and onto the stage with an electrifying performance of the timeless classic, ‘I Won’t Grow Up’. Our Foundation students performed an indigenous song called, ‘Bunjil the Eagle’ and were lucky enough to be joined on stage by Murrundindi. The finale, which involved the entire cast bought the house down with ‘This Is Me’ sending shivers through the audience with their deafening voices and beautiful uniformity.
Students, staff and parents all contributed in one way or another to this fabulous production. Students worked tirelessly rehearsing their lines, choreography and song lyrics. They also created the contents of the program, designed a logo for the show, contributed to the lighting, sound, props and costumes. Parents scoured the cupboards for black leggings, red t-shirts, Hawaiian shirts and dance leotards and our staff coordinated rehearsals, organised props and executed sound and lighting for both performances.
Congratulations to all involved!
