Mindcraft the Musical

This term, the Kauri Team have been working exceptionally hard to put together an epic production called 'Mindcraft the Musical' Written by Rachel Sutherland. In association with '" .

We split into 4 groups: The cast, the choir, props and costumes and met regularly to practise songs, make scenery props and design, and create, mindcraft box heads and other awesome costume pieces.

The production was written with great humour and high relevance to our technology saturated world and the students (and adults) took away the message that although technology is fun and important - friends and family and being good people is more important.

We performed the play on the 21st September both as a matinee performance in the day and a night show which had a fantastic turnout and recieved great reviews from the parents.
