Meet the Cast and Crew of Clue: On Stage (High School Edition)
We are very proud to present Clue: On Stage (High School Edition) as this year’s Senior School play production. From acting to backstage crew, we will be highlighting and introducing some of the students involved in our show as the weeks unfold. Our students will share their thoughts about the play, their experience with the performing arts, and the importance of arts in their everyday lives. We hope you will support this dedicated team of staff and students by attending this fun production. The shows run from April 21-23.
This week we are highlighting Qiaoman Tracey '23 and Sabine Wellard '24:
Qiaoman is originally from China, is currently in Grade 11, and she has been at King’s-Edgehill for six years. She likes to participate in plays and enjoys singing, dancing, and helping backstage. Qiaoman enjoys the fun aspect of acting and the production of theatre. She was first introduced to theatre when she took part in Aladdin Jr. and really enjoys helping with the productions. The arts have been like an escape for Qiaoman. She loves working with other cast members. Qiao thinks that music was her favourite art during the pandemic and she has had good experiences with all the arts. She is particularly looking forward to watching the audience figure out "whodunit.”
Sabine hails from Nova Scotia, and she is currently in Grade 10. This is her fourth year at KES. She has been in three musicals and one play (cancelled due to COVID-19). Her favorite musical was Frozen Jr., in which she got her first singing role as young Elsa. During lockdowns, the arts gave her something to do. She listened to lots of music and also watched musicals online. The thing she likes best about theatre is the way the actors can pull you into the world of the story through challenging work and props. As a small child, she enjoyed playing make-believe and liked the idea of doing it onstage. She believes everyone should join a theatre production at some point in their life because you develop public speaking skills and become more comfortable being yourself in uncomfortable and unfamiliar situations of all kinds. Good luck onstage, Sabine!
