This year’s ESC production was on Hairspray Jnr, there were a lot of students involved. It took quite a few months to rehearse and we had to try on the costumes many times. The production dates were the 6th, 7th and the 8th of August. We had a couple of schools that came and watched us perform from Eaglehawk North Primary School, Eaglehawk Primary School, Bendigo Violet Street and Lighting Reef Primary School. It was held in the PAC at ESC and was a “spectacular show” according to one audience member.
For this year’s Production, we performed Hairspray Jr. For my fourth and final year of Production, I was playing the male lead Link Larkin. It was a long 8 months with lots of hard work; I would especially like to thank Ms. Chalmers for pulling the entire production together.
It was a good experience being in this wonderful production and to do it with my friends made it even more special. Being part of the backstage crew was awesome – you can see the production come to life. I have been part of the production for the past two years and it has been a great experience. Hopefully I can come back and watch the next round of production when I am in year 11.
