Nazareth Cabaret: Arts Students Take Centre Stage with Broadway Spectacular
Our Music and Performing Arts students most certainly defied gravity last week, as they brought Broadway to Nazareth in the annual Cabaret showcase.
This year’s event, which spanned two enchanting evenings, saw students from Years 3 – 12 take centre stage, delivering unforgettable performances of Broadway’s greatest hits with unmatched passion and excellence.
The Cabaret event, a calendar highlight for the Nazareth Community, is a testament to the power of collaboration, uniting the talents of music and arts students from every campus, and even participants from Our Lady of La Vang School.
From the curtain raiser “This is the Greatest Show” to the final number “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” the audience was treated to a sensational performance.
Expressing her admiration, parent Michelle Battersby shared, “it’s mind-blowing how this is pulled-off. I particularly love how well the Arts are brought together [it’s] so inclusive and illustrative of how well everyone works together. I’m so proud to be a part of the Nazareth community.”
Sheriden Milam added, “this was the best show I’ve been to in the last few years,” while Victoria Harwood acknowledged the dedication, saying, “the hard work and preparation are evident, and the standard of performances just gets better and better each year.”
Cabaret serves as the Nazareth event of the year, with students eagerly anticipating the opportunity to perform alongside their fellow musicians, dancers, and drama students.
“I always look forward to performing with the other talented students, and the Broadway theme this year really heightened the entire experience and will definitely be one for the books,” expressed student performer Alexis Noronha.
For the graduating Year 12 students, this Cabaret was a bittersweet farewell, marking the end of an era filled with unforgettable memories. Jackson Cavallaro shared his thoughts, saying, “my final Cabaret was an experience I will never forget. The amount of effort, dedication, and work that went into organising it left us all exhausted, and yet we still put on the best performance we have ever done. The memories made and interactions created the most incredible atmosphere to share with my fellow musicians.”
Lauren Logozzo, another graduating student, expressed her gratitude, adding, “performing in my last Cabaret was definitely a very emotional time, but I am so grateful for everyone involved in making this the best one yet!”
Beyond the spotlight, Cabaret provided a unique learning opportunity for students like Christina Gazzola. She shared her experience saying, “the Cabaret gives us the opportunity not just to perform but learn dances as a collaborative team and work together with live musicians and perform to many people.”
The annual Cabaret event at Nazareth continues to be a shining example of talent, dedication, and unity within our community. It not only brings the arts to life but also serves as a source of inspiration and pride for everyone involved.
