A Multicultural Musical
"...to see ourselves as riders on the Earth together..."
Archibald MacLeish - 1968
RIDERS is a very entertaining musical which has as its theme the multicultural facets of today's school and the wider community.
It is fast moving, keeps an audience thoroughly entertained with one surprise after another, and gives plenty of scope for students to become highly motivated and involved.
RIDERS opens on a space-station with the characters looking 'down' on the earth. It is essentially a comedy, full of colour and energy.
LOTS of fun is guaranteed!!
The structure of RIDERS allows for great flexibility, in that many cultures and talents within the school are acknowledged and given prominent focus.
Everyone has something to give and something to share.
An important aspect of RIDERS is that it allows for creativity in production and can engage the whole school community including parents.
The Overture, a Cosmic Dance, allows students to choreograph movement.
In the Fashion Show, the Commentator describes the clothes and accessories according to what is being shown.
The Multicultural Festival is the pinnacle of the whole show, and is a culmination of the multiple and varied talents.
