“There's no business like show business”.
Established in 2011, the Glenwood High School musical is one of the most popular and highly anticipated events of the school year. Each year the musical has grown in student participation and production value.
Beginning in New York with aspiring school students of PA in Fame the Musical, travelling over the rainbow with Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and (who could forget?) the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz and then 2013’s production of Beauty and the Beast saw the beloved Disney film come alive on stage. In 2014, there is no denying that Oliver was our darkest and most intense production by far. The Pirates of Penzance sailed into Glenwood with all the psychedelic vibes of the 60’s. Grease was the word in 2016 with our largest cast so far bringing to life the rock ‘n’ roll age of the 1950’s in Grease the Musical. Our youngest cast hit the stage in 2017 with everyone’s favourite Nanny in our magical production of Mary Poppins. After years of requests, in 2018 High School Musical hit the stage, with over 130 students bringing to life a much-loved movie-musical.
The Glenwood High School musical allows students who have an interest in performance and/or production to explore the vibrant world of theatre. Each musical is carefully planned and rehearsed. Students develop a close bond with each other and learn skills of performance, resilience, and motivation. Led by a dedicated team of teachers, and performed over four nights in June, students rehearse during Wednesday Sport, after school and on Sundays for six months to create a wonderful production.
Tickets go on sale in May of each year. Ticket information is available on our facebook page.
