Once students have been attending Theatre Bugs for a few terms and have reached a certain skill level, they may be invited to an advanced version of Combo Bugs where they are challenged a little further in the areas of dance, singing and acting.
The Advanced Combo students continue their learning of dance (co-ordination, technique, jazz/contemporary routines), singing (pitch, projection, rhythm) and acting (characterisation, mime, voice projection, script interpretation, Stanislavsky method, acting for film/TV).
In term 2 the Advanced Combo students perform within their regular class time at the regular venue, sometime in the final 2 weeks of term. In term 4, the Advanced Combo students perform in a production involving many other classes from Theatre Bugs. In the past, the Advanced Combo students have performed popular shows such as ‘Aussie Grease’, ‘The Secret Garden’, ‘Step Back In Time’, ‘Aladdin’, ‘Peter Pan’ and ‘Snow White’. Each child is given an individual character part and has song/dance routines to learn. The End of Year Production is a great opportunity for the students to perform in a theatre with professional sets, lights, microphones and amazing costumes. Students are required to attend a couple of extra rehearsals in term 4 to prepare for the production.
The Advanced Combo students are also occasionally invited to perform in additional events such as Flash Mobs, the Credit Union Christmas Pageant, Peter Combe concerts and ABC’s ‘Behind The News’.
