It was an early morning start for 22 enthusiastic Drama students as the bus rolled out of Ardessie Street at 7.30am, bound for Mandurah and this year’s Youth on Health Festival. An intensive six week schedule of devising, learning lines and choreography, perfecting sheet manipulation and torch work kept the ensemble at school after hours and weekends to prepare for the competition. Students experience the Act Belong Commit ethos first hand and worked hard to be performance ready.

A crew of three students very capably provided the soundtrack, lighting and projection for the show following a very tight 30 minute technical run on the day. This crew experienced the pressure that technicians face; the stakes are definitely high!

Our exploration of this year’s theme, It Starts With Me, focused on facing our fears, whether it be in childhood, adolescence or adulthood. Shared stories of monsters under the bed, issues of self image and pressures of the workplace were explored in dialogue, verse and choreography. Tales of the Cowardly, the Brave and Steve was well received by the audience and Applecross students were awarded a Certificate of Merit for an ‘Innovative and Vibrant’ performance. We look forward to the announcement of finalists on September 20 and hope that we advance to the grand final.

Dan Jonkov and I congratulate the cast and crew on their commitment and focus on the night and in the process leading up to the performance.We are very proud of you! A huge thank you to the parents and staff that made the trek to Mandurah to support us, your applause on the night was very welcome!
