A Thrillifying Finish to 2021

There was an air of astonishment along with the usual nerves and excitement when the College staged its opening performance of the musical production Wicked at Costa Hall last Thursday December 9th, 2021. 

To an audience that almost filled our regions largest venue, and after a two year halt to the Performing Arts Industry, we were able to proudly welcome our College community back to live performance and for this, we couldn’t be happier.

The announcement of each Saint Ignatius College Geelong Production is the beginning of an exciting and rewarding journey that reaches a fitting finale on the stage of Geelong Arts Centre. It provides the opportunity of being entrusted with the artistry and capacity from such a brilliant cast and with this, the responsibility of providing them with a paralleled theatrical experience. 

On behalf of the Production Team, I need to warmly congratulate our wonderful cast and crew for their performance last week which was fondly described as "the emergence of a super new force in Geelong’s musical theatre."

The size of a production such as Wicked can never be underestimated and I would like to once again acknowledge the expertise and guidance of our Production Team in making this such a positively emerald and thrillifying experience for all of the wonderful young people, of whom we have had the pleasure of working with everyday throughout this process. 

I would also like to extend this thanks to all members of our College Community and staff at Saint Ignatius who contributed to this thrillifying finish to 2021.
