The Groovy Magic Love Show!, held at Ark Helenswood Upper School on Friday, February 3, is described by drama teacher Niall Whitehead as an affectionate tribute to the 1960s and the madcap comedies of the era, adding: “It is a spectacular new musical production showcasing the outstanding talents of the performing arts students across all year groups,” he said.

Featuring fabulous hit songs from the past, a strange mix of eccentric characters and a plot full of comedy and farce, the show played to a packed house, and it was an absolute hit for musicians and technical crew; creating an exceptional company and an unforgettable evening.”

Niall says the show continues Ark Helenswood’s proud tradition of producing inspiring performing arts productions. “This amazing production included students from Year 7 right through to Year 13 in roles as performers, singers, and dancers,

“This was a magnificent production which showcased the talents of our students and demonstrated the high quality of performing arts at the academy.”

“The Groovy Magic Love Show! was an original, imaginative and unforgettable experience for all involved.”
