Musical Production 2022


The music of Elvis comes alive in All Shook Up.

After eight long weeks of guesses, red herrings, and attempts to bribe the answer from those in the know, staff and students were finally privy to the world’s best-kept secret; All Shook Up is the 2022 Musical Production!

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Twelfth NightAll Shook Up follows a small Midwestern town that is thrown into a frenzy with the arrival of Chad, a good-looking, motorcycle-riding roustabout, who rides from town to town with a guitar on his back, blue suede shoes on his feet, and a song in his heart. Repressed by their conservative mayor, the town begins to come alive once more under Chad’s influence. Lovers meet, woo, pursue, and more, all in one zany night that will change the town forever. All Shook Up is a rocking, heartwarming tale about following dreams, opening up to love, and the power of music.

Auditions for All Shook Up will take place early in Term 3, with rehearsals beginning in Week 5.

More information about the show and that audition process can be found on the 2022 Production Audition Page. To join the group, visit the eCat Groups page, select the ‘2022 Production Audition Page’ and hit the Join Selected Groups button at the bottom of the page. 

All Shook Up will be performed at the Townsville Civic Theatre, April 2022. Keep an eye out for tickets!

It’s Time To Cut Loose… Footloose!

It’s Time To Cut Loose… Footloose!

The Cathedral School celebrated its Foundation Day on the 24th July, with the highlight being a spectacular performance of ‘Footloose’. The musical was originally planned as a full-scale performance to be held at the Civic Theatre in Townsville, but due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions – had to be temporarily put on ice.

With restrictions eased the resilient, hard-working staff and students managed to revive the show – albeit as a shortened 20-minute performance, at the school’s ‘Rock Centre’ – incorporating a live school band, awe-inspiring lighting and sound, and a live-stream of the event to those who couldn’t attend.

The show was performed three times during the day to allow the Junior School, Middle School and Senior School to view it in person whilst maintaining the required social distancing between seats. Everyone involved appreciated the glimpse of normality being re-introduced back into the school community and the rare opportunity to ‘cut loose’ for another magical Foundation Day.

So lose your blues and kick off your Sunday shoes, here it is… ‘Footloose’.
