Big Screen Sensation


Bracken Ridge State High School presented its biennial school musical – Disney’s High School Musical on Friday 5 and 6 June. This stage adaptation of the Hollywood film brought the turmoil of high school cliques and teenage belonging to the foreground, allowing students to encourage each other in accepting the differences that make them unique.

The school musical is the result of continued nurturing by The Arts Department and the greater Bracken Ridge State High School community. Staff and students look forward to the musical every two years as a means of refining and celebrating their achievements and hard work. These achievements and contributions were not just from The Arts Department but provided an opportunity for students across the school to be a part of this wonderful cultural experience.

This year we were fortunate to have the talents of a professional choreographer, Mrs Roz Vivian, join our Production Team to assist our talented school staff. The contributions of Mrs Vivian to our musical were invaluable, allowing for seamless transitioning between acting and dancing. In addition to this, the support of Brisbane Concert Lighting allowed The Arts Department to incorporate new technology in set design through the use of LED screens to present many of the backdrops to the scenes, providing an added degree of quality to the production that was well-received.

The musical is always a positive experience for those staff and students involved, creating stronger bonds between our already tight-knit school community. The Arts Department would also like to thank those parents and community businesses and groups who supported our production this year through the provision of services or goods, for which we were exceptionally grateful.
