All Saints’ College Little Shop of Horrors Production

All Saints’ College Little Shop of Horrors Production

After premiering in the West End almost four decades ago, the cult classic musical Little Shop of Horrors is returning to the stage at All Saints’ College…but this time with a twist!

This tongue-in-cheek comedy has been performed by All Saints’ Senior School students previously in 1998 and 2009. However, this year’s version is unlike the traditional production known by audiences around the world.

All Saints’ College Director of Arts, Mr Stephen Roberts, has stripped back and stylized the original script in a unique way which unveils the usually concealed rehearsal process.

Audiences will see ‘behind-the-scenes’ of the production with the backstage crew, band, sound and lighting technicians forming part of the on-stage cast.

And there’s no man-eating plant puppet in this production, instead, a ‘skeleton’ of the organism and several Senior School actors will bring Audrey II to life on stage.

Despite the College’s unique approach, the beloved characters and the suspenseful plot remains the same as in the original production created by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken.

Little Shop of Horrors is packed with romance, comedy, mystery, suspense, murder, tragedy, and more. It is a musical everyone will enjoy!

Date: Wednesday, 20 – Friday, 22 June 2018
Time:
 7.00pm – 9.00pm 
Venue: All Saints’ College Centre for Performing Arts, Ewing Avenue Bull Creek WA
Cost:
$22.00 (Adults)
$16.00 (Concession)

All Saints’ signs historic partnership with Beijing Academy

ALL SAINTS’ COLLEGE PARTNERS WITH UNIQUE BEIJING ACADEMY TO PROMOTE INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATIVE INNOVATION 

All Saints’ College (ASC) has signed a three year ‘sister school agreement’ with one of China’s foremost educational institutions, Beijing Academy (BA), becoming the Academy’s only Australian partner school.

With both schools’ emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship, in addition to the usual language and cultural exchanges for students and staff the partnership will provide for students the opportunity for international collaboration on innovative and entrepreneurial projects.

“Beijing Academy is not only unique in China – it is internationally renowned as a globally-engaged hub for collaboration and learning,” said All Saints’ College Principal, Belinda Provis. “Of particular interest is its work on exploring 21st century educational models as this aligns with the work of ASC’s Beyond Boundaries Institute”.

The Beyond Boundaries Institute (BBI) was launched at All Saints’ this year. Dedicated to innovation and leadership in educational practices, it is committed to exploring and implementing at ASC new and flexible structures for learning that recognise, and are focused on, the diverse interests, abilities, passions, skills and futures of the College’s students.

“As part of the work of our BBI, All Saints’ students are encouraged to develop an innovative and entrepreneurial mindset to develop not just new products and services, but also new solutions to real-world problems,” said Ms Provis. “To be able to partner on some of these with students across the world in Beijing opens for our students a whole world of exciting opportunities.”

US-based Professor Yong Zhao – internationally-renowned educational transformer and Patron of ASC’s Beyond Boundaries Institute – was pleased to help facilitate the partnership.

“I congratulate All Saints’ College and Beijing Academy on their sister school agreement,” said Professor Zhao. “Both schools share the same aspiration to prepare globally competent, creative and entrepreneurial students.”

Farewell, Class of 2017!

Today marks the last official day of school for the Class of 2017, Year 12 students at All Saints’ College.

The morning started with the Year 12 breakfast where students sign each others’ shirts and say their goodbyes. From there the group went to plant the Class of 2017 tree which was dedicated by Father Tony Murray-Feist.

Then the Year 12s went through the Colonnade, a gauntlet of students from the Senior School, teachers and support staff who cheer them off into the arms of their parents waiting in the car park.

This evening is the Valedictory Dinner at HBF Stadium where parents, teachers and students come together for a night of reflection and entertainment.

Recorded live stream footage of this morning’s events can be viewed on our Facebook page and this post will be updated with photos throughout the course of the day.

Click here to view a selection of photos from today.

Good luck to the Class of 2017. Go well!
