"The journey of School2Stage began in 2014. Madeleine McMahon and I were in the final year of our contemporary and applied theatre degree when we decided to further our creative outlet and try our hand in the education industry. At the start we decided that our most prominent goal was to give the students complete control over the script and content of the shows. This allowed the students to reach their creative potential without the borderlines and restrictions that can come along with set curriculum. Our second goal was experience, presenting these shows at professional and well renowned theatres. This gives the students valuable industry experience, exposure and just pretty cool bragging rights. School2Stage has adopted a working culture of absolute enjoyment. If it’s not enjoyable for the students or if it’s not enjoyable for the S2S crew we won’t do it. This environment is exactly what School2Stage is about, we have fun at work, the students have fun at rehearsal and we love challenging ourselves by putting on shows that get bigger and better each year. From presenting shows at schools to presenting at The Brisbane Powerhouse in such a short period has been incredible.It is an absolute pleasure working with such talented individuals and creating these incredible productions." - Alexander Clarke, Artistic Director of School2Stage
