We were so incredibly excited to finally have the opportunity to put on our College Musical, Matilda — The Musical, two weeks ago. Spanning over three evening performances open to the public, on 4, 5 and 6 August, as well as two primary school matinee performances, this show was a culmination of almost four years of sweat, tears (and sometimes blood) from our incredibly dedicated cast and crew.
Over the past three years, we have seen this show have three different casts. Some students remained in their same role for the three years, others moved from being a chorus member, to minor leads, to finally a lead role. We were even lucky enough to have a number of Old Collegians come back and perform their roles, on stage or as part of the band or the crew, in conjunction with our current students, which was a true display of community.
The shows themselves were a spectacle of shimmer, glitter, feathers and lots and lots of books! The students absolutely shone playing the strange and wacky characters that we were introduced to in Matilda's world, with some absolutely mind-blowing talent and dedication shown by our wonderful and young budding actors and actresses.
We couldn't be prouder of how our students represented the love we have for the Performing Arts at MLMC. Matilda will certainly be missed.
