2019 production of Wicked!

After months of preparation, Wicked came to life at Canberra Girls Grammar School in May, 2019.

Across the four shows, the cast and crew revelled in the opportunity to perform to a full house, bringing the community together for a celebration of acting, singing and dancing.

The musical, which essentially focusses on friendship, female empowerment and standing up for what you believe in, featured more than 40 CGGS students on stage, supported by male cast members from Marist College and St Edmund’s College. Many more students played in the orchestra while others worked hard behind the scenes moving props, assisting with make-up and wardrobe and providing tech crew support.
