Oh What a Night!

The brilliant College production of ‘Go Tell Alice in Wonderland’ has been recognised as one of the top secondary school stage shows with a bumper crop of five prizes at the Showdown Awards! The awards celebrate the best Auckland secondary school productions with a glitzy ceremony at Sky City Theatre. The judges, who are all experienced theatre practitioners, attend shows across Auckland before releasing a list of nominees in 23 categories: performance, technical and production; musical and drama.

The College consistently has a high number of nominees and this year was no different with 14 nominations in 11 categories for the Senior School musical ‘Spamalot’ and drama ‘Go Tell Alice in Wonderland’. Our winners covered the full gamut of what is required to put on a great show, from acting talent, to mise en scene and creative guidance. Year 13 students Becky Lane and Trent McDonald were judged to have played the best supporting roles, as the Queen of Hearts and Caterpiller in ‘Go Tell Alice’.

The College Head of Drama, Mrs Emma Bishop, scooped three prizes for her work on the play, receiving the best costume, best set and best director awards! Congratulations to all of our winners and nominees and everyone who worked on the productions to contribute to this success!
