Each alternative year the college Arts department teams us with students from across all year levels to create and deliver the biennial school production. Students are involved in all levels of the production and work very closely with the Arts department staff. Opportunities exist for students to assist with the design and production of the sets, dance, song, drama and music.
INTO THE WOODS
This year we are excited to announce that the students of St James will be presenting Into the Woods!
The Brothers Grimm "go Broadway" as Sondheim and Lapine offer up a nonsensical fairy tale where all of your favourite characters — Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and The Witch — meet and interact on their journeys. With unforgettable roles, little dancing and no chorus, Into The Woods JR. showcases a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors. The sophisticated score has been adapted to make it easier — though still challenging — for young performers.
Into The Woods JR. is a funny and engaging way to get young people to think about the stories with which they've grown up, and the ethical issues raised therein.
