  1. Hey,
    Well done to all concerned, both from Cashy’s class and Wonthaggi!
    I’m pretty chuffed myself as our school had a couple get in, too. We have a Drama guy in doing his Pride and one of my Theatre Studies guys doing his Messenger from The Bacchae. Looking forward to seeing them all perform. It’s always an interesting experience at Top Class seeing the different ways students have managed to come at the tasks, not to mention the ridiculous standard of the work.

  3. Hey there,

    Looking forward to seeing all of your students perform at Top Class. Im the PRIDE from Wonthaggi Secondary with the extremely large (so large its ridiculous) prop, wearing lace… Yep, thats right lace. Can’t wait to see everyones interpretations and meet others. Its gonna be great. I’m on the 7th at 1 and will be gonna along to watch and support everyone at the other concerts. Now I just gotta get my piece back up to scratch.

  4. Hey Will!!

    My name is Grace, the CWA girl in Cash’s class. If you want to see how I portrayed the cwa character, im performing on the 22nd of April at 11.
    I’m pretty hard to miss with my walking frame and lipstick teeth. (haha)

    Make sure you come say hey 🙂

  5. That was a quick reply… Our 3 performances are split over the two concerts on the Friday… Our Pride is at the 1pm concert, and the Precious and Puck at the 4pm concert… We’re from Wonthaggi Secondary College down in the country, near Phillip Island (public schools rock!)… Our teacher is absolutely ecstatic… I can’t wait to see the way your CWA member interpreted the Prescribed Structure… We had a CWA member and we thought it would be an A+ for sure but the examiners mustn’t have seen what we saw… I’m kind of dreading starting to go through the rehearsal process again but I don’t want to look like a fool on the stage and have people walking away saying “that was not A+ material…” Good luck… Catch…

  6. Congratulations to you Will! Well done. Whoa! There’s two school’s out there with three from the same class! I’m sure your performance is every bit as good as the quality of last year’s Top Class performances, Will. It’s just that you probably can’t judge it objectively because you’re part of it all. And, like my students, sick of your solo by now because you’ve rehearsed and performed it so many times! What school are you guys from again? BTW we have a Security Guard, a Country Women’s Association Member and a Beauty Queen (Helena Ruenstein). The character choices over the two Drama programs should be pretty well spread as it is a hidden criteria in their selection process. According to VCAA, our Security Guard is on the 7th and CWA Member and Beauty Queen on the 22nd. So I’ve booked a bunch of tickets for myself and my Year 11 and 12 Drama classes on both dates. Good luck for the 7th Will!

  7. That’s an amazing outcome!!! 3 from my class also made it into Top Class this year too… There must have been something in the water in 1987… I know when I opened my letter it was a moment of pure shock… I’m still overwhelmed and cannot believe the outcome after 7 days… When I think about the standard of last year’s Top Class performances, I know that my performance is nowhere near that level!!! I just cannot wait to see the way everyone interpreted each character… I know I’m sick of doing my solo so I can’t wait to see others… I wonder what the character ratio will be like this year… We have a Pride, a Precious and Puck… Just wondering what your student’s characters are Cashy? Good luck to everyone and we’ll see you on Friday the 7th!!!
