Arts Update

Despite 2020’s best efforts to suck all the joy out of life, CCC’s Arts Department refuses to submit – with staff and students alike toiling behind the scenes to bring a little bit of colour and a lot of artistic flair to Term 3 and beyond! Our Drama department has an ongoing partnership with Queensland Theatre as part of the Scene Project. In Week Nine our Year 11s will be travelling into the Bille Brown Theatre to perform their take on “Wisdom” by David Burton for other schools and for the professional actors and directors of QT.

Our resident thespian group The Company have been hard at work on Monday afternoons all year, and we finally have a date for our much delayed production of Romeo and Juliet! For two nights only on Wednesday the 2nd and Thursday the 3rd of September, head to our amphitheatre space out the front of CPAC at 5pm for our twist on the star cross’d lovers, in an action packed half hour show. We’re still crossing our fingers that 2020 doesn’t let us down and torpedo your chance to see it, but musical rehearsals are getting serious – and hopefully Term 4 will unveil our school production of Footloose for your viewing pleasure! Keep your eyes peeled for more information to follow.

Finally, Visual Art students have been showing off their incredible talents – make sure to step into the CPAC foyer in Week 9 and 10 to be blown away by the Year 12s exhibition. On top of that, eight of our Year 11 and 12s have been selected to exhibit at the Logan Art Gallery as part of ‘Artwaves’ from 11th September to 17th October, and some have been chosen for the Creative Generation Excellence in Art regional exhibition – with the possibility of being selected for exhibition at GOMA in 2021!
