2013 saw the Sydney Roosters win the NRL season, the word ‘selfie’ get added to the dictionary and Argentine Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio became our new Pope. In 2013, Emmaus College presented Oliver!

Oliver! is a musical based on Charles Dickens`s book "Oliver Twist," narrating the tale of an orphan who flees from the orphanage to join a group of young pickpockets in 1830s London. He befriends the Artful Dodger, a boy under the guidance of the crafty Fagin, and is saved by a generous man after being unjustly blamed for a theft. Nonetheless, he encounters peril from Bill Sikes, Fagin`s aggressive accomplice.

1997: John Howard is our Prime Minister, Harry Potter and Philosophers Stone by J.K Rowling is published, and the average price of a house is $150,000. Emmaus College also presents The Sound of Music to the Rockhampton community.

The Sound of Music takes place in Austria just before World War II. It revolves around Maria, a young woman who takes on the role of governess for the von Trapp family. Through her introduction of joy and music into their rigid home, Maria forges a close connection with the seven von Trapp children. Over time, Maria develops affection for the children and later their widowed father, Captain von Trapp.

What happened in 2004? It’s the year Facebook was launched, Apple released the iPod Mini, Shrek 2 and The Incredibles was in theatres and Godspell was the chosen musical for Emmaus College.

So what’s Godspell about? Godspell presents a contemporary reimagining of the Gospel of Matthew. Led by John the Baptist and Jesus, the characters engage in parables, songs, and interactive scenes that emphasize values such as kindness, compassion, and empathy. By combining storytelling and music, Godspell underscores the importance of love and forgiveness in times of adversity.

This year, Emmaus College is celebrating 40 years of musicals and we’re taking a trip down memory lane every week leading up to our 2024 Musical – Mary Poppins!
In 1989, the Cold War ended, the Berlin Wall came down, the Galileo Spacecraft was launched by NASA and it’s the year Emmaus College presents Brigadoon.

Brigadoon is about two New Yorkers (Tommy and Jeff) who stumble upon Brigadoon, a mystical village in the Scottish Highlands that appears for a single day once every hundred years. Tommy is captivated by the village and falls in love with a local girl named Fiona. However, he soon learns the truth about Brigadoon’s magical existence: if anyone from the outside world stays in the village, it will vanish forever. Tommy must now choose between his love for Fiona and the life he knows back in New York.
