“AU REVOIR” FROM MARY POPPINS AND FRIENDS
After four hugely successful performances of the St Michael’s College Musical ‘Mary Poppins Jr.’, it was with elation and a strong sense of achievement that the cast and crew said “au revior” to the Woodville Town Hall and each other. Scenes backstage after the final show were both jubilant and emotional. Students felt so proud of the high-quality performance they achieved together, as well as a sense of sadness that it was over.
For four days students enjoyed exchanging the daily rigor of life in the classroom for a professional theatrical experience. In this they honed their performance skills, strengthened friendships with students across campuses and year levels, and enjoyed listening to the encouraging claps and cheers from adoring audiences. This experience for all staff and students involved will be highly memorable and will be a reminder of the power of the Arts to forge friendships, build confidence, and change lives for the better.
On behalf of the cast and crew I would like to thank the members of the St Michael’s community for their overwhelming support and generosity. This musical has brought us closer together, encouraged us to be brave and challenge ourselves, and keep in mind that, as Mary herself sings, “anything can happen if you let it.”
