Wingham High School Drama students have a long tradition of producing and presenting high quality entertainment with their annual musicals performed to packed auditoriums.
Their productions have developed a certain reputation and a set of expectations over the years. Those attending know to expect music, bright costumes and light-hearted fun involving students of all ages.
This year, they are trying something new. Audiences will face a more mature and confronting play dealing with serious issues.
Performed by year 10 and 12 students, Stuck in the Middle is a story of love, friendship and the ongoing quest to fit-in.
Being a teenager is not easy. Aside from the relentless pressure to succeed from parents and teachers, there is the constant pressure to fit in and belong among your peers. And when you’re still coming to terms with your own identity, being a teenager can feel downright impossible.
Stuck in the Middle is created entirely by senior students, being written and directed by year 12 student Travis Cross. Year 12 entertainment students are completely in charge of set, costume and lighting design. The senior play is truly a showcase of the practical and organisational skills of Wingham High School students. All proceeds will be donated to the year 12 charity.
Stuck in the Middle will be performed at 7pm on Thursday and Friday, November 23 and 24 at the Wingham High School MPC. Tickets on sale now from Wingham High School accounts office.
The play includes contemporary social issues and some language that may offend. It is advisable to take this into consideration.
