During Term 3 of each school year, students at James Cook Primary School put on their spectacular musical performance in front of a large audience at Dandenong’s Drum Theatre complex. Every student has the opportunity to audition for a speaking role, ultimately developing confidence and speaking skills. Students become immersed in the topic of the musical through the learning of dances, songs, actions and dialogues culminating in the one night show, usually during September. Students are provided wonderful costumes for the night and can even purchase a DVD showing the performance of the night. This is a fantastic event to become a part of for students aspiring to build their performance art skills.
