Last Night of Dona Rosita

It's Friday night and it's almost 10pm. I've just got in from seeing the last performance of Dona Rosita. Now, I'm not really allowed to give a review of the show as it would most likely be biased, or you'd all think it was biased because I work here! However, I will say that I have never been more impressed with a group of 14 - 16 year olds. I had to tell the cast that the scene where the lover leaves Rosita gave me goose pimples this evening, and I nearly welled up telling them that! There were actually members of the audience that left with tears in their eyes!


I overheard two of the cast members talking at the end of the show:
Alice: "I'm so sad it's all over! This is my last show at Bradon as well!"
Kat: "I'm not sad it's over, I'm proud we've done it."
Congratulations cast of Dona Rosita. You should be proud!

Thank you for the privilege of being at Bradon tonight. It was an awesome treat to see students fulfilling their potential as performers on the live stage, in a setting that was worthy of ALL their talents. Having seen some of them at school last year, I know that the next influx into the stage will be local, on a national basis.... Thank you.
