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).
They perform in two major events each year – in term 2 the Advanced Combo students perform in a musical with the Musical Theatre and Advanced Musical Theatre students. In term 4, the Advanced Combo students perform in a production involving many other classes from Theatre Bugs. Both productions are held in theatres. 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 two major productions are 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 terms 2 and 4 to prepare for the productions.
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’.
