Face2Face student Ella Wappner introduces this week’s Musical Theatre showcase and shares with us her love of musical performance encapsulating singing, dancing and acting.
Beauty and The Beast tells the story of a young prince turned Beast and a young girl who feels like she ‘doesn’t fit in’. The role of Belle was played by Ella.
“Ella’s voice was stunning, clear and full of texture. This, married with her excellent acting ability was simply wonderful to watch.”

The Holroyd Community Theatre hosted Moreton Hall’s home-grown production of Chicago ahead of its official opening and with temporary lighting and sound, the setting gave the performing arts students their first taste of a professional venue.
Produced and directed by Moreton Hall’s Head of Drama, Kate Howells, this vaudeville of musical theatre transports the audience to prohibition 1920’s Chicago: smoky, gritty, sensationalist; it really does have ‘All that Jazz’.
This dazzling performance is the brainchild of playwright Vicki Duckett, directed and choreographed by Kate Howells and music director Amy Lott.
Highgrove School of Performing Arts proved to be the setting for this high octane and energetic production. Following the lives of a diverse group of students seeking their moment to shine, the play echoed generations of musicals about teenage angst. This was a school where everybody had different talents and competition for leading roles was tough.
The cast brought this vibrant school to life, performing rousing songs such as ‘Popular’ from Wicked, and ‘From Now On’, the showstopper from the Greatest Showman. All delivered with such gusto.
Be transported into the ominous world of ghouls, ghosts, spirits, for one of Moreton Hall’s most dramatic masterpieces.
An archetypal gothic comedy the story is about a mysterious family where Wednesday Addams – the macabre, crossbow-wielding daughter of Morticia and Gomez – has inexplicably fallen for a ‘normal’ guy.
