It has been an interesting journey through the past weeks and months as we put together a musical with an awesome group of learners. Obviously musicals have a large number of moving parts and the need for a range of expertise to make them successful, whether it be direction, choreography, set design, back stage, music, hair and make- up, sound and lighting. For a production to be successful everyone has to work in sync and be a well-oiled machine.
A musical like this demands talent, time, effort and determination from both staff and learner and The Addams Family musical was absolutely fantastic and I am so proud to be part of the Performing Arts at Whangaparaoa College.
