SINGLETON High School’s musical play Sh-Boom will take the audience on a journey through two decades of music when it hits the stage later this month.
The original piece written by drama teacher Kristina Lowe follows an unusual plot where three music stars from the 50s get frozen in time only to remerge in the present day.
Phoebe Rock, Bree Drury and Sam Schultz play the 50s music stars rescued from a plane wreckage in Antarctica where they were frozen in ice. They meet today’s music starts played by Kirri Chalker and Shanelle Fairhall.
“The play is a feel good comedy but does have some drama to it,” Ms Lowe said.
“It’ll appeal to both parents and a younger audience, we have about 15 songs shared between the two musical decades.”
Some of the songs featured are Be My Baby, Then He Kissed Me, Love On Top, Lady Marmalade and You Don’t Know You’re Beautiful.
A host of actors/actresses, musicians, dancers, sound and stage lighting technicians from years 7 to 12 have been working on the production for six months, some of which has been in their own time.
“The play almost didn’t happen this year but when I heard the girls singing beautifully at Music Art Drama Dance (MADD) night, I thought I was robbing them and the other students of the experience,” said Ms Lowe.
The musical will be on show at the Singleton High School Multiple Purpose Centre June 26, 27 and 28, tickets cost $12 for adults and $7 for concession.
The community is welcome to attend.
