Stars on Stage

Stars on Stage

Stars on Stage was awesome. It was great fun to get up and dance in front of everybody. I was really, really scared but after we had done it I wanted to do it again. My costume for the Red Queen was awesome but it was quite hard to dance in. I thought I was going to slip on my dress.

I loved my Mad Hatter costume and Dance, it was awesome. We all enjoyed doing stars on stage and it was so much fun and can’t wait till I get the DVD of it!!!

I loved Stars on Stage because it was a great experience that I may not experience again. I thought Miss Cooper did a great job. She put a lot of work in to all the costumes and choreography. It was such a great experience and I am sad that I may only get to do it once. If I do it again I know it won’t be as good as it was with Miss Cooper.

I really enjoyed Stars on Stage.  It was a great experience and really fun. The dance and the costumes were awesome. I was really nervous right before we got on stage but once we started it was awesome. I would like to say Thank You to Miss Cooper.  Without her it would never of happened.

I loved Stars on stage.  I had so much fun.  I wish I could do it all over again. It was one of the best experiences in my life.

I loved being in stars on stage because it felt like I was in Wonderland!


Stars on stage was a huge experience for me. It was so much fun working with Miss Cooper.   She was a great teacher with heaps of enthusiasm and great ideas.  She put so much effort into everything.   On the night I was oh so nervous but once that curtain raised up I was filled with excitement. I saw the crowd watching everyone with gob smacked faces.   It was so much fun being Alice. I thought I was really good and smiley. I wish we were able to do it again and again and again with Miss Cooper.   She was so much fun. I really enjoyed being Alice

Stars on stage was a great experience for me and Miss Cooper was great.  She put so much work into the costumes and the performance. We put lots of work into our Alice in wonderland performance with lots of practices but the finished result was awesome. I really enjoyed being the hare and I am sad that we only got to do it once!

On Tuesday night, years 5 and up participated in Stars on Stage at the Regent Theatre.
It was very fun performing in front of the huge crowd. I loved the costumes and the dances.
If I had the chance I would definitely do it again!

On Tuesday night year 5, 6, 7, and 8 went to the Regent Theatre. I was the white rabbit.  I wore fluffy pants, a long white sleeved top, a waist coat, glasses, rabbit ears, a scarf and a pocket watch. I was really nervous but I did it and it felt AWESOME!
