HS Swartland -The Diva – A production of epic proportions
The Diva – A production of epic proportions (Written by Taylah Strauss and Shawn Day)
So we have finished the 1st of May practice that everyone was so stressed about.
It went very well. You could really see the whole musical coming together and for once it actually felt like you were in the life of The Diva. Different emotions were flowing throughout your body.
The dances were really starting to come together, the songs were adding to the atmosphere and the words suddenly started making sense. I think Ms Kreuiter is so excited at this stage that she can’t wait for the Gala-evening.
The rehearsals are starting to get tense from now on and there will probably be some military drilling going on in Swartland High’s School Hall, but it will all be worth it. Everyone is so excited about the final evening and they are really understanding why they are doing this.
The day started with a run-through of the musical. We enjoyed the balcony and all the furniture on stage. Everyone wore their costumes with some being hired at Artscape, probably the most famous theatre in Cape Town.
There are really interesting costumes in The Diva, which adds to the fun of being in this musical. There are colourful clothing and then there are the black and white clothing. There are ball gowns and short colourful skirts.
We are so thankful to our crew, because without them we cannot keep the viewers’ attention in between the scenes.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are so excited to be part of this historical event at Swartland High. We would like to end off with a quote out of the modern movie, Greatest Showman:
What’s waited till tomorrow starts tonight!
