‘& Juliet’ Excursion
A few weeks ago, the Performing Arts department took a group of eager students to watch the new musical & Juliet. It is a reimagining of the story of Romeo and Juliet, but looks at what could have been if Juliet didn’t die. It is a fabulous, feminist and fun piece of musical theatre set to the soundtrack of late 1990s and early 2000s pop music. This was an optional excursion that students could choose to attend. We had students take up the opportunity and from all accounts, they loved every moment of it.
‘A mix of Performing Arts students in Years 10, 11 and 12 went to watch one of the newest musicals & Juliet. This musical flips the script on one of the most known love stories, Romeo and Juliet and gets people wondering: What if Juliet didn’t end it all over Romeo? As people get swept away on this fabulous journey, she ditches her famous ending for a new beginning and a second chance at life and love. The students at OLMC who have chosen a Performing Arts subject get the chance to go and watch some well-known musicals and performances. This gives the students a chance to go out with their peers and enjoy a night or day out with one another whilst getting the opportunity to watch these performances and learn about the different aspects of performing that we are learning about in class.’

‘On Thursday, a group of students went to see & Juliet at the Regent Theatre. We were on the edge of our seats the entire time, and clapped so much that our hands hurt. It was an engaging experience that has left us listening to the & Juliet album on repeat. We apologise to the people in front of us, we may have been a bit loud when cheering….oops!’
