Hello, Dolly! wows crowds

A combined audience of 1,800 filled the Logan Entertainment Centre across three sold out performances on 3-4 May, as audience members were treated to the talents of the cast, crew and orchestra members from Redeemer's 2019 production of Hello, Dolly!

Preparations for this year's musical have been in the making for many months, with staff from both the Junior School and Senior School involved in the production, from many departments across the College, including Art, Music, English, Design, Technology, in addition to many Support Staff who have helped to make the production possible.

Redeemer's bi-annual musical allows students to be involved across a number of year levels where they have the opportunity to be involved in a variety of areas such as the orchestra, cast and crew in different musicals. It is wonderful to see the students develop as they build their skills in a production capacity, as well as growing their relationships with staff and students across many year levels. It is clear that students’ confidence is also developed when they experience success in such a public forum. Many talents are showcased which otherwise could have remained hidden.

Congratulations to all 111 students involved in the orchestra, cast and crew, and a big thank you to all staff and parents of the College who have supported students involved with this year's production of Hello, Dolly! - clearly Redeemer's best yet!
