A huge congratulations to our talented Drama students for participating in the Act Belong Commit Youth on Health Festival on Friday! Students took to the stage at the Red Earth Arts Precinct to show their self-devised drama performances which explored the health message of ‘Wellness’. The performances were incredibly unique, including escape rooms, 80’s dance moves, a late late talk show, and a very enthusiastic dance coach, just to name a few. Some performances left the audience in fits of laughter and others conveyed a strong, emotional message.

Each performance took home a certificate of merit which celebrated a particular aspect of their performance:

  • Benjamin Gathmann Brandt – A beautifully crafted script
  • Cody Fenner, Tyler Hitching and Riley Churchman – Super whole cast physicality
  • Madelyn Anderson – Dynamic stage presence
  • Dean Keane, Hayley Thompson and Dinoshan Subramoney – Entertainment appeal
  • Bryce Mitchell, Koby Stafford, Robyn Woods and Teniel Hadley – Audience appeal
  • Makayla Hutton, Tari Muzambwa and Darcie Coventry – Comic appeal
  • Emily Wills, Emma Goodrem, Catherine Ngo and Sophie Downham – An original and interesting narrative
  • Chloe Kukura – Excellent audience engagement


Special mention to Hugh Carton and Jenna Potts for their work backstage as volunteers for the YOHfest team. From organising the performers, running stage rehearsals and acting as MC, the show could not have been done without you.

Congratulations to all our performers and backstage crew!
