Scots boys make College history with their HSC group showcase

During the period Thursday 7 to Friday 13 February, five students from The Scots College took to the big stage at the Seymour Centre with their Drama performance Manly Island from the 2014 Higher School Certificate. Vice-Captain of Drama at The Scots College, Harry Licence from Mosman, led the showcase, which was one of the College's four OnSTAGE nominations in 2014. This is the largest number of Drama works that the College has had recognised by the Board of Studies NSW since 2009.

Manly Island, a highly physical ensemble piece, exploring notions of masculinity, is the College's first-ever group performance selected for OnSTAGE. Harry Licence is proud of the group's achievement, which culminated in a sold-out performance at the Seymour Centre. "Preparing the showcase has been emotionally challenging at times, though overall a thoroughly rewarding experience. We have come a long way as a group and I will never forget how great it felt receiving the news of our OnSTAGE nomination."

"All our hard work paid off. Experiencing the enthusiasm from the audience after our performance, sent shivers down my spine," said Harry who, along with his group, developed the Drama piece themselves.

Dr Ian PM Lambert, Principal at The Scots College, said, "It is a pleasure witnessing Scots boys making College history as they strive for success together. We are proud of these young men who have welcomed our call to embrace excellence as their benchmark."
