As the creative talents of staff and students come together, the audience will be swept up into a world of mystique, charm and character as performers pay tribute to the Bond movie franchise. Faith’s talented young performers will leave you shaken and stirred as they share Bond classics like Thunderball, Skyfall, Writing’s on the Wall, Live and Let Die, Goldfinger, No Time to Die, Nobody Does It Better and many more.
Year 11 student, Caitlin White reflects “During these times many things are uncertain, but music is a way to bring everyone together. Showstoppers is a celebration of the connections and joy that music can bring, and what can be achieved when a community unites together.”
Over three decades, the main stage at Faith Lutheran College has been an important launch pad for young performers. Showstoppers provides a real-world learning experience for over 50 talented students and this year’s production will also feature the rising talents of Aspire students. Launched in 2022, Aspire is the College’s pinnacle Arts program, designed to foster talent and develop connections between students and industry experts within two arts streams, performing arts and music.
‘In Aspire it has been amazing to work with like-minded people who share the same passion as me: performing. There is such a mix of students with a range of gifts and passions. I had no idea how much talent was in our school. It’s been inspiring to see so many students of different ages and backgrounds share their talents and ideas to contribute to the Showstoppers performance. I cannot wait for showtime!’ Layla Grosser, Year 11
As Faith’s Aspire program seeks to prepare students for a career in the music or performing arts industry, Arts Coordinator, Mel Crawford was delighted to share a special announcement with students; “we are thrilled to welcome a well-established music industry professional back to the main stage at Faith. In 2019, Year 10 student Georgia Mannion was crowned Unearthed High winner by radio station Triple J. Georgia has continued to inspire a new generation of talent, launching new songs on national radio and playing headline concerts across the country as ‘George Alice’. We are delighted that Georgia will return to us and perform at Showstoppers, continuing to inspire students to chase their dreams.”
So back your Aston Martin out of the garage, dress up in your best Bond outfit and join the community at Faith Lutheran College for a wonderful evening of entertainment. Tickets to Showstoppers are available online through the Barossa Arts Centre.
