A cohort of students from The University of Queensland is set to take to the stage in an upcoming performance of ‘7’ at the Geoffrey Rush Drama Studio at 7:30pm on Wednesday, October 31.

About 14 Bachelor of Creative Arts students will present an inaugural musical review ‘7’, which blends Broadway hits with the theme of The Seven Deadly Sins.

Production Manager Emily Parker said with songs such as Cell Block Tango from Chicago, Money from Cabaret and tunes from Anything Goes, ‘7’ promises to be a captivating and thought-provoking performance.

“It’s a blend of songs from some of Broadway's best known plays and monologues by the students,” Ms Parker said.

“The performance provides a new perspective of the theme of The Seven Deadly Sins; which has not been performed before by university students.”

14 Bachelor of Creative Arts students feature in the cast and the production is being directed and managed by final year BCreatArts students.

The production team includes: Heather Fairbairn (Director), Emily Parker (Production Manager), Alana Tierney (Chorographer) and Eliza Stubbs (Musical Director).
BCreatArts convenor Dr Sean Edgecomb said through the performance of ‘7’, students would be able to showcase the exciting practical work they have been involved in at the University.

“The passion, talent, intelligence and drive that these students demonstrate both in class and in performance, is quite simply, amazing,” Dr Edgecomb said.

Tickets are $15 and available by phoning the School of English, Media Studies and Art History on (07) 3365 2552 or at the door.
