DRESSED FOR SUCCESS:
Horsham College students and staff involved in Matilda the Musical hone preparations for the school’s annual production during a full dress rehearsal. Cast and crew were meant to present the show at Horsham Town Hall from September 2 to 4, however the latest COVID-19 lockdown has again ruined plans. Director Emily Friedrichsen said as a result, the production had been postponed ‘pending operational options’. She said students had endured a wide range of challenges this year, including half the usual face-to-face rehearsal time. “Despite that, there has been a lot of student motivation and self-direction and I’m so proud of them,” she said.
