While this play can be performed unencumbered by the conventional trappings of theatre, like extravagant sets, props or lighting, there is no fun in that. So we worked creatively as a company to have students perform together as one character, play with puppets, sing and move in chorus. We developed an incredible lighting design, costumes that reflected the bleak world of Rainbow’s Ending , with little pockets of colourful hope, flexible set pieces, and props constructed from recycled materials. Our huge thanks goes to the exceptional work of Grant Hadley, Philippa Dye, Pip Stephenson and Hannah Clarkson for ensuring these visions could be brought to life. Our students have given everything to this production, relinquishing a great deal of their time and energy to animate the multitude of characters in Rainbow’s Ending . I am incredibly proud of this cast, as well as the dedicated crew members who have made it all seamless behind the scenes. It was gratifying to see our junior crew take the lead in vital roles like stage management, and sound and lighting operation, with such incredible success. We managed to stage all six performances to very enchanted (and sometimes shocked) audiences, including a matinee show for our feeder schools. We asked a great deal of these exceptional young people – maturity, enthusiasm, dedication, courage, and extraordinary theatrical skills. I cannot wait to see how they grow and flourish in their respective talents as we fly into the next great adventure. Nikki Bleyendaal Director
