On Thursday 15 March, the VCE Drama and Theatre Studies classes as well as the Year 10 Live Production class had the amazing opportunity to see the magical performance of Wicked at the Regent Theatre. As this was a part of our assessment tasks, it allowed students to consider all aspects of what makes a production come to life. This performance was an amazing experience and for some of us, our first look at live theatre.

Throughout the performance we were not only entertained, but also educated about the intricacies of stagecraft, character development, and the power of storytelling. One of our favourite parts of the musical was certainly ‘Defying Gravity’; an impressive, powerful song that also evoked a few tears (especially from Ms Taine and Ms Gamble)! We were inspired by the energy each actor brought to the characters and the vibrancy of each scene that created an exuberant, lively atmosphere. We are all so grateful to have had this opportunity and loved every moment!
