Oakhill College’s performance of the musical, ‘Miss Saigon’ has been labelled a huge success.
Principal Br Peter Ryan said the production is one of the biggest community building exercises in the school’s calendar, with more than 150 staff and students supported by their families involved in the show.
Br Ryan watched four of the six performances.
‘‘I was privileged to attend...and share with sell-out audiences an outstanding musical and dramatic experience,’’ Br Ryan said.
‘‘I was also privileged to hear the comments of an appreciative and often over-awed audience who were freely and sincerely using words such as ‘‘amazing, brilliant, awesome, splendid and wonderful’’ - which indeed it was.
‘‘The importance of our community gatherings cannot be underestimated for it is here that we visibly see the reality of our community.
‘‘Over six marvellous nights, almost 2500 members of the Oakhill community participated in ‘Miss Saigon’ as cast, crew and audience.
‘‘What a wonderful way to give practical expression to our sense of living in community.’’
