THE stage is set for a top night of entertainment this Friday as Wade High School students prepare to impress the city.
The school’s annual MADD Night will be held at the Griffith Regional Theatre, with a matinee show for schools and an evening performance from 6pm.
Involving students from years 7 to 12, organising committee member Maria Martinez said the show was a chance to demonstrate the quality talent that exists at the school.
“MADD Night is about putting Wade High’s talent on stage for parents, peers and members of the wider community to see the potential of the students,” she said.
“It’s going to be a great night.
“It’s a good school community event. It encourages kids to join in extra-curricular activities.”
Ms Martinez said a lot of time and effort had gone into the production, which features dancers, musicians, soloists and drama acts.
“Everyone has given up their free time to be part of it and it has come together well,” Ms Martinez said.
“This is the time of year when we all could do with a bit of a lift and we find that MADD Night really does that.
“I think it’s because the whole school is working together. This year we’ve cut the length of show back a bit.
“Elise Dessmann has co-ordinated a fantastic show and I think everyone will enjoy it.”
The show will cover a wide range of musical styles including classical, contemporary, hip-hop and modern music.
There are only a limited number of tickets available, which can be purchased at the regional theatre.
