The school that really performs
MURWILLUMBAH High School Arts Week will be wowing audiences again this year as they prepare for another spectacular sell-out series of performances.
With three evening performances on June 20, 21 and 22 at 7pm and three matinee performances, the show will amaze audiences with their professional standard, according to creative director and music teacher Michael Keogh.
"The fantastic thing is that by creating this slick production forum, students rise to the occasion and discover a level of talent within themselves that they didn't realise they possessed," he said.
"One such student whose performances just keep getting stronger each year is senior student Claudia Allard.
"She will once again be among the stage highlights."
A guest performer at the Murwillumbah Jazz club and Salt's Carols By Candlelight, and a well -known attraction at Murwillumbah and Kingscliff Performing Arts annual events, this year she will also be on the line up for the popular Ukitopia Cabaret 360.
Ms Allard has been singing and playing piano from the age of five.
"Arts Week is always something to get so excited about," she said.
"Our school has so much talent and to share this with the community is so thrilling.
"I always have so much fun performing with my friends in front of our school.
"Nothing makes me happier than entertaining people."
She is described as having a stage presence and voice that is powerful beyond her years.
"Her voice is so full of warm and worldly expression that no-one could come away unmoved," Mr Keogh said.
Performances will take place in the school's Elliott Centre.
