THEME

The THS P&C is supporting an all of community musical, initiated and passionately supported by Anne Kenyon & Kate Paull. Anne & Kate together have a long history with the THS community and are co-creators and facilitators of The Sound Studio.

We believe a musical will add greatly to the THS community and alongside the performance opportunities for the students, it will bring many authentic learning opportunities within the 4Cs (creativity, collaboration, community and critical reflection) framework.

The musical will be professionally supported and funded and will engage as many of the THS community (starting with the students) as it can in all aspects of producing the musical.

Kate Paull (Director)

Kate is a vocal coach and former musical director of Glee Club Australia & Kick Performance Group.

Anne Kenyon (Producer)
