Year 8 play is Totally Awesome
With only six weeks of intense
rehearsals, the talented Year 8 pupils of Hazelwood School brought the house
down with their presentation of Totally Over You, a topical play about the
perils and pitfalls of chasing after celebrity status.
For many of the audience, the
performance took them back to the days of their first romance and unfulfilled
ambitions against a backdrop of music and retro-fashion. Set
in a classroom, the play charted the changing status of a group of boys who,
having been dumped by girlfriends in search of A list boyfriends, get their own
back by forming a boy band.
Called Awesome, the band
becomes the next best thing in pop music and presents the boys with a series of
difficult decisions, challenging friendships.
The spotlight was turned, as well as on the articulate and animated
cast, on the world of celebrity
culture, the pitfalls and the temptations of shooting to fame and fortune.
were many fantastic performances and cameo appearances, the most entertaining
of all were the stage side dancing of Jack G playing the band’s manager and the
geeky drama group’s alter egos as celebrity stylists, photographers and
cast are to be applauded on their A-star performance and on their unanimous
decisions to continue with their education and to leave chasing the limelight
for later on in life.
