Robin the Hood

Fraser Coast Anglican College is inviting the Fraser Coast community to take a trip back to the middle ages, to experience a romantic time of fair maidens and knights in shining armour through the staging of their musical Robin the Hood.

This action packed, mad capped romp through the unknown history pages of England will take the audience on a journey to show what really happened back then, not how history wants us to remember it.

Cast and crew will also have the privilege to speak with the author of play, Mr Simon Denver, when he visits the College on Tuesday 28 February for ‘Author in Residence Day’. Students will have the opportunity to ask Mr Denver for his input into their interpretation of the characters and have him guide them through the script.

“The students are very excited about Mr Denver’s visit and we really appreciate the time he is giving us to help us improve our performance. Staff and students have been working hard rehearsing and preparing for the musical during this term.” said Mr Ian Slater, Director of Visual and Performing Arts.

The musical features a cast and orchestra of students from Years 7 to 12, showcasing the exceptional talent of the students at Fraser Coast Anglican College.

“There is plenty of positive energy coming from the students as the excitement builds for the big night”, Mr Slater added.

Fraser Coast Anglican College Principal Mrs Harper said the performing arts are an important part of the College curriculum and she is extremely proud of the talent and commitment of the students and staff involved. “Performances such as this are a key part of our calendar. It serves to build confidence in our students and develop positive relationships by working as a team. It is also wonderful to offer them an opportunity to showcase their talents.”

“Special thanks go to the teachers, support staff and parents who have been putting in extra hours to help out over the past few weeks” added Mrs Harper. “I am looking forward to seeing their efforts come together in what is sure to be a wonderful and memorable evening for all involved.”

The musical will be held at the Brolga Theatre on Friday 24th March at 7.00pm and Saturday 25th March at 2.30pm and 7.00pm. Tickets are priced at $25/adult and $15/student and are available online through The Brolga Theatre.
