Production Camp

What do you get when you put 100 highly energetic and talented students from Westlake Girls and Westlake Boys together for four days? You get Production Camp – an action-packed weekend of preparation for our upcoming Westlake Productions. This year, the two schools will present a musical – Crazy for You – and a play – The Three Musketeers – with two casts alternating for the latter.

Last Thursday, the students travelled to Marsden Point Christian Camp, where they rehearsed from 8:30 am to 8:30 pm daily. This included intensive sessions focused on acting, choreography, polishing dance routines, singing workshops, and character analysis. And if that wasn’t enough, each day began with a 6:30 am. Jump Jam session and finished with games, quizzes, and the annual Lip-Sync contest! Camp finished with full run-throughs of each production. Needless to say, many more students were asleep on the bus home than on the way there! 

The standard of performances is already highly impressive, and with six weeks to go they will only get even better. Be sure to get along to both shows: alternating performances from 30 April to 11 May. (Dates listed below).
