SEAVIEW HIGH SCHOOL

1995

WINNER OF THE 1995 SA

ROCK N ROLL EISTEDDFOD

 

Dreams are our subconscious mind attempting to make us consciously confront our fears, thus enabling us to control, conquer or dismiss them.

 

 School Magazine Article 1995

WHO ?

 That time again, what do we do this year? What can we do that is new, exciting, never been done before? A meeting! We'll have a meeting to get ideas. Who? Students reps, from each year level: those who are likely to be in it this year and have done a few already. Kym Maziakowski & Nina Hassam from 12, Michael Debnam & Nicole Cremer from 11, Megan Hammond & Marni Hassam from 10. What staff? Bob Weatherly, Robyn Horley and Neville Philp, they were great in 94! Doug Vaughn, wants to be involved! Ian McCloud, winner twice at Reynella East and finalist at Morphett Vale - YES!

WHAT?

Plenty of ideas? Not really ! A few. One idea in my mind keeps coming back from a video that was watched. FALLING. Could we really make the audience think they were falling in the Festival Theatre? How to do it? What could it be a part of? More meeting: more discussions: more talking with everyone. BEDS. Seen a dance piece that used beds and looked stunning. How to use this with falling? What, what, what to use THIS TIME. Hey, great track by Janet Jackson: right length, 6 mins 58 sees. Ian McCloud talking about his dreams, really weird!!! Yes, BEDS, DREAMS, FALLING, what other nightmares? claustrophobia, being chased, afraid of snakes? YES. What then? Take control, be in charge: THIS TIME.

THE PROCESS

Auditions, about 130 to took at for a cast of 60. Really hard task, many sessions but finally have chosen: those who missed out were really unlucky, please try again next year. Allison Kilsby got in this year and found it really worthwhile persisting. Rehearsals start in term 2. Feeling our way, great input from Annabel Baker-Dinsdale with the Army choreography. Dreamers start to improvise their moves on the beds and come up with some great stuff, we'll just rearrange. Mel Jan (ex student now at BA Dance Course) comes in to work with the demons. The snakes start to get their slithering in order. How to show the Falling? get Philpy on the job. Large tripod to suspend Nina, buy a good harness, make a backdrop. BACKDROP? - To make it work needs to large Yes it WAS the largest ever used at The Festival Theatre for any show, 25 metres long by 15 metres wide. It took about 10 hours to sew together and an unbelievable amount to paint - But it worked! And costumes for 62 performers, huge thanks to all the parents, we can't do it without you.

THE HEAT

What a day? Everyone excited? You bet! We're on first. Bet they thought we'd take forever to set up with our reputation for big sets but as usual our crew were excellent. Run through a bit down on performance, lacked energy but we'll be better tonight AND we were. Great performance that made the short list. Now we wait for the finals announcement. YES. We get in and are listed as Item 10, last item, second half is good luck, the tenth Eisteddfod is good luck.

THE FINAL

 Over three nights, last one is judged. Excitement is very controlled. The build up is excellent, WHAT PROFESSIONALISM from a group of students: And the winner of the Award For Excellence is... "SEAVIEW" Congratulations and well done to everyone who was involved. The piece was sensational, the approach was excellent and it was an absolute pleasure for everyone to be involved.

FAX FROM NORWOOD MORIALTA (1994 Winner)

Congratulations to the true and worthy winners! You looked absolutely stunning on TV. You've taken the Eisteddfod event to new heights.


A RESPONSE by HAYLEY SHEPPERD (1995 yr 10)

Every year I've always been hopeful 
Standing on the stage at the very end

And every year they'd always pick

The same one I'd recommend

But this year it was different

THIS TIME I'm on the winning side
 And just like every other school

 We'll hang our trophy with pride

After all the hard wok and determination

At the very end, we all just knew

Standing there with 9 other schools
THIS TIME twas definitely SEAVIEW
