School Production

St. Peter’s College presents – Bring It On

17 – 20 JULY 2024 | 7:30 – 10PM

With over 100 students from both Cranbourne and Clyde North campus as part of the on stage cast, the St. Peter’s College 2024 Production is set to be bigger than ever! 

Bring it On is an exhilarating journey of ambition, friendship, and the high stakes world of competitive cheerleading. This show promises to entertain with its compelling narrative, catchy songs and dynamic dance routines. With music and lyrics co-written by the creator of ‘Hamilton’ Lin Manuel-Miranda, ‘Bring it On‘ incorporates a range of musical genres from pop ballads to hip hop to rap.

At the heart of ‘Bring It On‘ is a story that resonates with anyone who has ever strived to find their place, faced rivalry, or dared to dream big. Following the twists and turns of high school cheerleading competitions, the musical explores the themes of identity, betrayal, and the true meaning of winning. 

With casting taking place at the end of 2023, rehearsals are already in full swing. Our Specialist Dancers and Cheer Squad have been busy partaking in cheerleading workshops and learning the choreography for our energetic opening number. Leads and our ensemble cast have been working on their vocals, learning songs from the first act and working through complex harmonies and upbeat rap sequences. 

The production will take place in the first week of Term 3 from Wednesday July 17 through to Saturday July 20.

Tickets will be available to purchase through Try booking in Term 2.

SIS Drama & TheatreSports

Improvisation is fun! It’s about freeing one’s creative spirit in a positive and safe environment. During the SIS Drama Workshop Day, participants include anyone who’d like to do something creative, improve their communication skills, develop their storytelling skills or just have a great time. The instructors are trained improvisation performers who have been performing and teaching nationally and internationally for many years.

Improvisation is based on the following principles: acceptance, being positive, being in the moment, making your partner look good, embracing and removing fear, enjoying failure and storytelling. The classes are designed to work on these principles through a series of exercises and games in a fun and supportive environment. Regardless of experience, background or training, everybody can benefit from improvisation.

Improvisation is an old art form going back to the 16th century with the Commedia dell’Arte (Italian meaning “comedy of professional artists”). The Commedia dell’Arte where travelling performers who would set up an outdoor stage and improvise stories based around a repertoire of stock situations and established characters.

Today, improvisation is widely used in theatre as an actor’s training tool, a rehearsal technique, an exploration tool for writers, a theatrical performance style, a musical style and a dance form. It is performed internationally in hundreds of forms.
