Supernova Bursts onto the NIST Stage

Nov 4, 2014

The arts teachers at NIST, bucking the trend of standard musicals, have consistently delivered their own self-penned productions for several years. These performances have proved to be every bit the equal of other professional shows, and this year’s Supernova: The Musical added another notch to their belts. Over 200 year 4, 5 and 6 students were involved in the production, written by NIST teachers Mark Bourgeois and Craig Chambers, and every one of the three show nights sold out, with 1,000 tickets snatched up in a single day!

With so many young children performing with passion and enthusiasm, reactions from the audiences were nothing short of overwhelming. Parents described it as “remarkable”, “spectacular”, “an amazing performance” and “one of our best moments in life”. Yet the most touching responses came from those who shared memories of their children being shy and withdrawn on stage, and then described seeing them open up during this production, joining their peers with confidence and enthusiasm.

Thanks to Mr. Mark and Mr. Craig, all of the arts teachers and staff, the many other staff who contributed to the show, the parent volunteers and all of the other members of the NIST community who supported a wonderful production that ultimately helped us offer our students an experience of a lifetime. The Supernova soundtrack, recorded in the NIST Marley Recording Studio, is available from the Music Office, and a professionally-produced DVD of the opening night will soon be released. More photos of the performance can be viewed in our Zenfolio album.
