Plainsong Workshops Saturday September 6!

Hi Everyone,

I’ve finally made good on my threat to host 2 workshops this term! The first workshop is on September 6 at 9.00am at the Musical Theatre Department of Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University, at 8 Burke St Woolloongabba. For students aged 16 and over, it’s specifically designed for students aiming for a place in a tertiary Musical Theatre course. For more information check out the Workshops page.

The same afternoon from 1.00pm I will be hosting another Performance preparation workshop for children aged under 16, same place and day. This workshop is designed to get children performing to the best of their ability in Musical Theatre and other genres. Information can found on the Workshops page.

Plainsong students are performing particularly well this year. Recently at the Enoggera Eisteddfod Connor, Zoe and Will received most of the first place prizes, or were placed second or third in each section entered. With up to nine competitors in each section this is a great result! Also at the Brisbane Eisteddfod Connor also performed well, and Ellie also competed fantastically well, taking out first prizes in all her sections. A brilliant result from all of them! Clancy continues to sing brilliantly and won the Boy’s Championship at the Ipswich Eisteddfod a couple of months ago. Also Charlie won her school competition with the following awesome performance of At Last, despite a rather horrid case of tonsillitis.

Another performance well worth watching is Clancy in Theatre and Dance’s recently posted performance of Two By Two: . He’s playing Elder Cunningham. And finally, Felix is performing in The Sound of Music in New Zealand this September. Well done to all students for a really great year of performing success!

In other news, Matilda the Musical is coming to Australia! Auditions are being held in the January Holidays. Watch out for more information about that.
