Howick College offers may opportunities for our Performing Arts students to showcase their talents. Dance, Drama and Music is performed both at the school in our theatre and also at other venues within the community such as the Uxbridge Arts Centre. Please visit the photo gallery to experience more our Performing Arts talent.
As part of a series of lunchtime concerts to showcase local music talent, Howick College music students performed at the Uxbridge Arts Centre on Friday 1 June.
Several groups entertained the local audience with classical pieces and the concert ended with some lively pieces from the Howick College Jazz Band.
The first major production of 2012 was the true and inspiring story of Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller. Powerful and moving performances were delivered by two casts of students ranging from Yr 9 to Yr 13, who even learned sign language to gain a better understanding of the characters.
Congratulations to all cast members, crew and everyone involved in the production. Well done and thanks to Drama HOD Mrs Dryden and her team for their dedication and hard work.
Congratulations to our Stage Challenge crew on their excellent performance on 27 June and winning 5 awards in the Auckland (night 2) competition:
Stage Challenge is an annual nationwide competition for secondary students to create and perform a concept dance and drama piece. Students work hard to produce a 5-8 minute performance of their interpretation of the Stage Challenge theme. The Stage challenge team, with the aid of dance teacher Mr Harada, create not only the dance itself but also costumes and the visual effects.
