“I loved directing this Musical, The Haunted House. The students really loved the fast paced – rock songs and the funny script. They took to their ‘spooky’ roles well, and ultimately, a lovely moral about bullying.”

 Bev Collier

 P-6 Music Specialist – Bentley Park College


This musical was a fun and energetic production … the story not only entertained the audience but had everyone enthralled as to what is happening next!  The ‘humour’ was certainly the key to its success as ‘the message’ was portrayed in a way where all ages could understand why ‘the good’ will always win in the end.

 "The Haunted House  is a heart-warming , humorous production with a powerful message around bullying that allowed 120 children to work collaboratively, yet individually shine. David Shortland’s music, script, and direction is simply outstanding”
