Term 1 Week 10
The Broadway on Swan Family Concert is just over a week away and we need your help! Ticket sales are very low. Our students are ready, our parent committees are ready and our catering team are ready - now we just need you! This event has been created as family concert, with entertainment from 3.20pm and food from 5.00pm so that families can stay on campus and enjoy some relaxing family time. If you are planning on attending, we urge you to please purchase your tickets soon. Parents can organise to meet in year groups, House groups or family groups. Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.
The Broadway on Swan Family Concert, featuring the Guildford Grammar Symphony Orchestra, will be held on Thursday 11 April at the GGS Boat Shed, with the Swan River as our stunning backdrop. The concert is open to all members of the community.
With the support of FOPS, FOSS and the Old Guildfordians we have arranged pre-show activities and entertainment so that families can come along straight after school, set up their chairs or blanket, and settle in for a night of Broadway themed music! We also have a VIP package where families can purchase a picnic dinner which will be served in a roped off VIP area complete with seating and VIP parking.
FOPS will provide children's activities on Roberts Oval from 3.20pm, including an inflatable obstacle course, bungy tug of war, a bouncy castle and face painting.
Our amazing GGS Catering Team will once again set up their street food stalls from 5.00pm, with three varieties of street food available for purchase. We sold out last time as the food was delicious! If you would prefer to bring along your own picnic dinner, you are more than welcome to! Due to popular demand we will also be selling our own GGS ice creams, as well as coffee, tea and soft drinks (EFTPOS and cash available).
At 5.00pm the music starts, with a roaming Mariachi Band featuring Old Guildfordian Jimmy Murphy. Dressed in costume, the band will roam through the crowd entertaining us with their upbeat and entertaining performance!
The main event starts at 6.00pm on the stage, featuring the Guildford Grammar Symphony Orchestra and Senior School music students performing a range of Broadway inspired numbers. The playlist for the night includes:
- I Dreamed a Dream from les Miserables
- Grease Mega Mix
- Little Shop of Horrors
