IPS Mainstage Production

A highlight for students and their audiences every year, the Island Pacific School Mainstage musical theatre production is a voluntary extracurricular activity that has used both original and adapted material to mount an impressive student show each spring.

When using adapted work, students start the production process by brainstorming ideas for additional original material. Teachers help by editing the final script after soliciting student input. Songs that are adapted for the show are often rewritten by students who elect to sit on the Creative Team in the beginning of the school. All students are invited to audition their talents and the show frequently features over half the student body in some capacity. Students are involved in acting, singing, musical instrumentation, dance, set construction and tech production (such as lighting and sound) and even the ever-demanding job of stage managing.

A short rehearsal run takes the place of our Monday & Thursday Ultimate program during the winter when the weather starts to favour indoor activities (such as theatre). The real magic happens when the lines are (almost!) memorized and dress rehearsals take place..
