Skooliez out early at Coolum

Skooliez is coming!

Coolum High School’s musical production, based on that infamous November week of mayhem and fun on the Gold Coast, opens next week at the Coolum Civic Centre.

Skooliez tells the story of a group of students from Misericordia College who stay at the swanky Sunshine Towers Hotel where an ex-crim, posing as the concierge, and his two sidekick security guards, plan to rob the kids of all their valuables.

During the course of the show we meet the six main schoolies (including an American exchange student who steals every scene), the Parent Patrol mothers and a smooth “serial schoolie”.

But don’t be misled – this musical promotes important values, such as what it means to be a good friend and the importance of loyalty and integrity.

It deals with the dangers of Schoolies Week in a light-hearted way.

As audiences have come to expect from Coolum High productions over the years, some great young talent has again been unearthed.

Expect goose bumps when Elleicia, Tash and Jaymi sing Where Do I Go From Here?

Audiences are sure to be impressed by the Broadway-style full cast presentation of At the Sunshine Towers and We’re Revolting!

And watch out for a royal performance by Elvis.

The dancing is exciting, the singing is great and the costumes are beautiful. It is a must-see production and not just for musical aficionados.

The cast, band and teachers have spent many hours, before and after school, as well as weekends rehearsing, rehearsing, and rehearsing for the huge whole-school musical production.

Skooliez opens on Thursdayand runs until Saturday. Showtime is 7.30pm. There will also be a school matinee on Thursday at 10am.

Tickets cost $15 for adults and $10 for students and pensioners, and are available from the school library.

Opening night is expected to be a sell-out out so book early.
