School Ball Information 2022

Doors open at 7.30pm and close at 8.15pm, students may not leave before 11.00pm.
It’s Show Time!

This term our dramatists will be taking to the stage to perform our Senior and Junior plays.

The Junior Play involves approximately 30 year 9 and 10 students, who have been rehearsing hard since the beginning of the year, with their director Mrs Dean.

They are performing a play entitled GIZMO, by Alan Ackybourne. The play is a comedy… When an everyday barman witnesses a terrible tragedy, he is over taken by paralysis, which leads him to become a guinea pig for the latest medical treatment, a wrist watch that controls his every movement. But what happens when the wrist watch falls into the wrong hands?

The Senior Play involves approximately 20 year 11, 12 and 13 students. They have also been rehearsing with director Mrs Rowe since the beginning of the year. 

Once again comedy is the name of the game! They will be performing a stage adaptation of the popular television series MIRANDA. A series of unfortunate and cringe worthy events are revealed as Miranda lurches from one awkward situation to another.

Both of these plays will be performed in the College’s Performing Arts Centre. Gizmo on 7th and 8th June and Miranda on 22nd and 23rd June. All tickets are available from the College reception costing $10 for adults and $5 for students. All performances start at 7pm. 

We hope you can come and join us, it promises to be “Such Fun!”

Student Musician Success

“One of our very talented Year 9 students, Zen Miyanami (pictured right), has been involved in the Tauranga Musical Theatre Production of That Bloody Woman, a rock musical about Kate Sheppherd and the Women’s Suffrage Movement.

This is a huge task for any musician let alone a 12 year old (Sorry Zen!). Zen is an incredible musician and a fantastic young man. It is a pleasure having him involved in the arts at Ōtūmoetai College. Also involved in the band is former Ōtūmoetai student, Ethan Shiriwastow (2nd from right)”. – Mr Bodman
