Wizardry High Tea

A magical experience for our students, crafted to perfection!

Earlier this year, the Acting Department were contacted by an event management group in search of 10 talented students to deliver several performances at the Wizardry High Tea. This event was like any other high tea, with an enchanted twist.

The selected students adopted similar characters to a well-known school for wizards and engaged with hundreds of people each session; guests enjoyed a high tea in the beautiful old grounds of Sydney University.

So successful were our performers, that they were invited down to Melbourne last week to revive their characters at a futher 13 High Tea events!

This all expenses paid trip to Melbourne saw The McDonald College students perform over 13 sessions in front of almost 4000 people: all in just three and a half days. The crowd’s age-range was from 1-90+ and featured plenty of laughs, photographs and even spells that were cast in this magical event. 

“It was truly a magical experience in Melbourne and the following students should be complimented for their incredible work,” recounted Greg Friend, Head of Acting. “The students have received rave reviews for their work and represented the College superbly. Opportunities like this allow our students to spend valuable time living and working as professional actors, gaining first-hand experiences and honing their skills.”

Congratulations again to our esteemed wizards!
