A NIGHT AT THE FRASEUM: a showcase of student talent!
Audiences were entertained by students’ singing, dancing, choreography, musicianship, acting, humour, stage presence and enthusiasm over the four nights, with a sold-out audience and standing ovation on closing night!
Comments from the students
The production was a cultural experience I’ll never forget. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of a performance which showcased the diversity of Fraser, my school, which I am a proud student of. Being part of the Hawaiian section was a very new and especially exciting experience for me. It was hands down my favourite performance. My fellow performers created such a welcoming family, where I created new friendships, and reconnected old ones. A Night at the Fraseum is definitely going to be the highlight of my last year at school. – Xanthe Buchan, Year 13
For me, production was an opportunity to meet new people and get back on stage. I have always loved performing so I jumped at the chance to be a part of something like the school production. As a bonus, I made many new friends and learnt about new cultures and dance styles. The production was an amazing opportunity for students to learn new skills in an exciting and welcoming environment. – Mackenzie Hoskin, Year 12
Production was like getting adopted into another family with different bits and pieces that made a priceless puzzle. It was my home, my whaanau, my passion, as well as a place to be myself and show what I’m capable of. Now that it’s over I miss being on that stage with all those beautiful human beings! I am missing all the support, the excitement and especially the fun and energy! – Jenna Williams, Year 10
It was a great opportunity to be a part of the Night at the Fraseum production cast. I really enjoyed sharing my culture with everyone, and hearing the audience support us at each show.

I had promised myself that the next time there was a school production, I would audition. There was a school production, so I auditioned. It felt good to live up to those big dreams. Everybody involved in the production was amazing and I can say I’ve made some more cool mates, and even learnt how to apply makeup! During rehearsals, it felt good having a constant clear goal to work towards, now I’ve got to find a new one. – Nathaniel Smith, Year 12
