The arts are well and truly alive at Dunstan High School – and pupils are taking the stage to prove it.

The DHS Showcase is a student-led production celebrating visual and performing arts at the Alexandra Memorial Hall next Thursday night.

Around 100 pupils are involved in the showcase on stage and off, from sound and lighting, through to dance and musical performance items, solo items and numbers from award winning choir Dunstanza.

An exhibition of student visual arts will also be on display.

Year 12 pupil and arts leader Maz Cameron said the showcase was the brainchild of the Arts Council, led by him and Emma Kelliher.

“We’ve got so much talent here,” Maz said.

The showcase would allow pupils to show their talent to a wider audience than the in-house performances that happened at the school, and would be used as a fundraiser to further the arts at the school, he said.

Head of arts Bronwyn Barnes said the showcase was completely pupil-led and supported by staff.

“It’s a great opportunity outside of the classroom where students can further their experience and perform to a wider audience.”

The Dunstan High School Showcase is at the Alexandra Memorial Hall on July 12.

Tickets are $15 and available from the DHS office or door sales.
