Rosny College musical soars

Rosny College students are flying high off the back of dazzling audiences with their 2024 theatrical production of Catch Me If You Can The Musical.

“Rosny College has a proud and long-standing tradition of musical productions,” director Clare Latham said.

“This year’s production was a big and bright spectacle with high-energy dance numbers and an entertaining, action-packed narrative.

“It showcased the range of skills and talents our students bring to their performances with spectacular dance numbers, beautiful songs and heartfelt and comedic dialogue.

“Our production team, where possible, was comprised of industry professionals and Rosny College alumni who gave our students the aspiration and understanding that a career in the performing arts was achievable.”

The musical, based on the 2002 Steven Spielberg film adaptation, follows the true story of American con artist Frank Abagnale Junior who successfully posed as a pilot, doctor and lawyer whilst evading the FBI in the 1960s.

Production manager Andrew Holmes said the school musical was a student-driven experience focused on learning and developing skills across all areas of the musical theatre industry.

“These areas include stagecraft, singing, dancing, acting, backstage, sound design, lighting operation, costuming, front of house and being part of the musical band,” he said.

“It’s a really special and unique experience to witness students undertake this collaborative and hands-on learning journey.”
