Opening Night Style at QPAC: Wicked

 

 

I love the new touring production of Wicked (read my rave review here) and having only just experienced opening night on Sunday, unexpectedly, randomly, to fill the teacher-student ratio, I was able to see it again today with the beautiful kids and music staff from Matthew Flinders Anglican College. That’s right. I know! How lucky am I?! Lucky it’s an awesome admin team there, who can cover a lunch duty and a double Year 8 Drama class at the drop of a hat. Sorry Year 8s – I hope you were good for your teacher this arv.

 

It was interesting to see the show from the balcony, where I was able to take in the production in its entirety, rather than focusing solely on the performers in the space. This can happen when you sit in the stalls, and it means you’re sometimes missing the true scale of a production, like using the zoom function on the DVD and missing crucial elements outside of the new frame. If you only ever zoom in you may never see the director’s original vision for a film.

 

It was interesting to see and hear Ali Calder’s Elphaba so soon after experiencing Jemma’s performance, and it was interesting to hear the students’ responses to various aspects of the show. MFAC kids are well travelled so equally as interesting was hearing where in the world they’d previously seen Wicked… Today’s performance marked the fourth time one senior student had seen the show and he felt, as I did, that some of the performances were a little flat. We agreed Calder may have been “holding back”. More student comments to come…

 

I won’t post a pic of the Stella pants and Seed Heritage top that I wore today because #openingnightstyle

 

Poppy and I got a little bit greenified for opening night. No doubt you’ve seen these pics on Insta already (and no doubt noticed that I look as if I haven’t slept for a week. That’s because I haven’t slept for a week)… #newmoon #newintentions #getmoresleep
