Scots PGC college impress with the Glee club stylings
SCOTS PGC College students impressed crowds with their To Glee or Not to Glee performance at the University of Southern Queensland's Shakespeare in the Park Festival in Toowoomba last Wednesday night.
The students from Year 8-11 worked hard on their performance and it paid off.
Drama teacher Kirstie Andrews took a group of girl boarders to view last year's To Glee or Not to Glee and, after witnessing their enjoyment, suggested this might be a suitable cultural performance offering for 2013.
When the idea was pitched to the students, there were some eager volunteers willing to take part and the To Glee or Not To Glee journey began.
For the performance, participants were provided with a list of themes on which to base a song and dance, from the current year's Shakespeare show.
The students all brought their creativity and talents to the process.
Those involved were Autumn Taylor (Year 8), Emily Bradfield (Year 9), Jillian Mortison (Year 10), Amelia Starasts (Year 10), Jacalyn Holmes (Year 10), Ebony Wickham (Year 10), Samantha Slattery (Year 11), Tiffany Cullen (Year 11), Gemma Wright (Year 11) and Shayne Hayes (Year 11).
Mrs Andrews said the students selected friendship as their theme.
"They were a very dedicated and involved group, taking ownership of the creative process, making key decisions and choreographing much of the work under the watchful eyes and leadership of Miss Penny," she said.
"I am so proud of what this wonderful group of girls has achieved and would like to congratulate them all for their hard work and success.
"Of course, the performance would not have been what it was without the seamstress skills of Mrs Goonan who made all of the costume pieces which, everyone agreed, helped to round off our performance with a bang."
