Each year our students have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of staging a College Production
Viewbank College has a long and rich history of the performing arts, and the College Production is a wonderful collaboration between music, dance and drama. Each year the College stages two productions; the College Production is a musical, involving students from Years 7 through to Year 12, and in the latter part of the year, the Junior Production, a play involving students in Years 7 through to Year 9.
The College Production involves between 130-150 students each year, with students undertaking a variety of roles both on stage, backstage, and as part of the orchestra. The College Production allows students the opportunity to be part of a team for a professional show. Students who have a passion for singing, dancing and acting can audition for a role in the cast, or instead they can try their hand at the variety of production roles, such as stage crew, lighting and sound operation, costume, make-up and front-of-house. Students who play an instrument can also be involved as part of the live orchestra.
The Junior Production is another unique opportunity for students in Years 7, 8 and 9 to be involved in acting and performance or production crew. The Junior Production is a play, and is directed by the Year 12 Drama Captain with assistance from a selected Year 11 student. With a smaller cast of 35, and a select production crew, the Junior Production is very much a student led production and a great learning experience for those involved.
