On 20 September 22 students and two staff attended a performance of Sister Act at the Wellington Opera House. Ms Anderson the school’s drama teacher, played a role as one of the nuns and also made a number of other cameo appearances. The performance was amazing, the songs were great and the set spectacular. There was an amazing “Wow!” factor about the production.
Performances like this invite audience feedback and the cast were not disappointed – particularly when references were made to T.J. or when Ms Anderson made an appearance, a burlesque one in particular! Naenae College was in the house! The cast gave really positive feedback about the encouragement that got from the audience that night.
At the end of the performance, students met Ms Anderson in Cortney place and broke into an impromptu haka for her that stopped pedestrian traffic from both directions. It was a night to remember!
