The best dance and drama students showcase their 2019 HSC performances.
The 2020 Showcase season is well and truly underway, with the top performing dance and drama students from the 2019 Higher School Certificate sharing their talents with the public at the Seymour Centre this week.
NSW Education Standards Authority CEO Paul Martin said OnSTAGE and CALLBACK highlight the dedication, creativity and courage of Arts students in NSW.
“It is impressive to see how students reflect on their personal and community values in these performances – and I am so glad that both the public and future students have a chance to see them displayed.
“This year, students have explored themes including Australian history, gender in sports, the changing environment and experiences of life with ADHD.
“The showcases are a testament to the commitment of students and their teachers - as well as the quality of the NSW Drama and Dance curriculum,” Mr Martin said.
Highlights of this year’s OnSTAGE and CALLBACK programs include:
“As well as the students selected, congratulations must also go to the hundreds of students whose work was nominated,” Mr Martin said.
NESA also recognises the effort and skill of the teachers involved in setting and marking the students’ HSC practical examinations.
With OnSTAGE officially open and CALLBACK running from 13 February, audiences only have a short time to see the shows. Both performances close on 14 February. Visit the NESA website for more event information.
