For the last few weeks, Prep Years Three, Four, Five and Six have been collaborating with the Drama department to create their own interpretation of the musical, ‘Rock Bottom’ a rocking musical featuring the tale of Bobby Cobblestone, a young inventor who wishes to work for the most famous celebrity in all of Rock Bottom, Lady Lava! With a feast to honour the local Volcano and Lady Lava mining her magic ingredients to ensure she stays young forever, a fantastic musical adventure ensues!
The Prep school enjoyed a fantastic community Drama weekend on the 10th and 11th of March, inviting all the students involved and parents to participate in workshops for singing, dancing, prop making and creating costumes; the process has been a fantastic experience of creating work as a Prep community and produced an incredibly polished and professional performance.
The performance itself showed the dedication and talent of all the prep girls including outstanding moments of comic timing; great characterisation and several complicated musical numbers sang brilliantly whilst over sixty students performed difficult synchronised choreography. It really was a Stone Age spectacular!
