It was The Greatest Show!

In 2017 The Greatest Showman was released, starring popular actors Zac Efron, Zendaya and Hugh Jackman. The movie told the story of PJ Barnum and his desire to become a worldwide sensation through his creativity and ideas. The movie also had a special place in the memories of many of our current Year 12 students, who were obsessed with the songs and music from the movie when they began their journey at OLMC. It was therefore fitting that our first concert for 2024 was The Greatest Showman In Concert.

All OLMC music ensembles performed songs as they appear in the movie, with our senior leaders narrating what would have happened in the film between each item. The joy and energy from the 120 performing students was amazing and we have received many comments describing how this enthusiasm was passed on to the audience throughout the evening. For only six weeks of rehearsals, we are all very proud of the work that was achieved by each ensemble and can’t wait to see what they are able to share with us in our Term 3 Celebration Concert, Let’s Go To The Movies.

In the last week of Term 1, many of our musically talented students performed at The Greatest Showman In Concert. It was such an amazing performance filled with beautiful harmonies and musical notes taking you along the storyline of the classic movie.

As Arts Captain it was such a proud moment to see this idea, one that I had been pondering for about two years, come alive with so much joy and excitement.

A very special thank you to all of the students who put so much time and effort into the performance as well as Ms Mileto and all the ensemble teachers who helped make this night possible. It definitely was ‘The Greatest Show’!
