Dinner and show to remember

Contributed by Carolyn King

This term Beerwah State High School arts and hospitality departments teamed up to bring one of the biggest events of the year to our school and local community with “Dinner and a Show”.
The Performing Arts building was transformed into a beautiful restaurant and refreshments stand, with visual art on display, and table decorations created in collaboration between our school nursery, the visual art department and the Hospitality department.
The evening encompassed a variety of arts entertainment from our Beerwah Dance Company, melodies by music group ‘The Tremelos’ who really ‘Wiped Out’ the audience, scenes from Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet and King Henry VI complete with skilfully choreographed sword fights and the feature comedic Play ‘10 Ways to Survive a Zombie Apocalypse’.
Guests were entertained by solo vocals during the scrumptious dinner service of either slow cooked beef or country chicken casserole, cooked and served by our talented hospitality students.
Dessert was a sticky date pudding with caramel sauce, or a flourless chocolate cake with a raspberry coulis, served while short videos from Beerwah SHS Alumni shared their memories and experiences of their time at school and how this has shaped their employment pathways into various arts careers.
There was even a small dance interlude complete with audience participation! It truly was an honour to be able to create this special evening of celebrations for our school, our students, our staff and our community.
We hold very fond memories of this ‘Dinner and a Show’ and we would like to thank all of the audience members who came to support our school.
