2023 LHS School Production

2023 LHS School Production

The wait is finally over! FREAKY FRIDAY a new musical, is our 2023 School Production.


When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just 24 hours before Mum’s big wedding to put things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical comedy based on the celebrated novel by Mary Rodgers and the hit Disney films, is an hilarious, contemporary update of the classic story, in which a mother and daughter see what it means to be a family while experiencing each other’s lives firsthand, if only for a day.

Set in the present day, Freaky Friday features a tuneful pop-rock score, befitting a work that has effortlessly updated throughout its several iterations. Warmhearted, humorous and touching, this fresh take on the classic story is perfect for family audiences of all ages.

That’s a WRAP!

Thank you to every Dancing Queen and Super Trouper who made the 2022 Production at Lilydale High School a very special week of performance work!

Highlighting the flair, talent, dedication and resilience of our performing arts students on and off stage, this year the show was a fantastic celebration of musical theatre. Thank you to every student who participated in the cast, crew, on and off-stage in many roles. You did a fantastic job!

Special thanks to our helping staff Ms Goode, Mr Bleakley, Mr Morgan, Mr Lyons, Ms Polkinghorne, Ms Zavrou and Ms Timmers for your help in your expert areas. Thank you as well to all of our staff volunteers who helped throughout the show week and to our Administration and Principal team for their support of the LHS Production in 2022.

Many thanks to the volunteers (external community members, parents/guardians and alumni) who helped along the way as part of our band, tech team, front of house and at our fundraising events.

Congratulations and thank you our Production team members Ms Wells, Jesse Hone, Emily Artis, Tiffany Couacaud, Joshua Daly and Jonah Phillips for your vision for the show and the time you each put into every single rehearsal working with students and staff.

And as for me… well this teacher has heard the drums Fernando 😎

See you all again next year for another exciting Production at Lilydale High School.

Dear Lilydale HS Community

VALE Genaha Thompson

It is with great regret and sadness that I inform you of the passing of Genaha Thompson, Assistant Principal and much loved staff member at Lilydale High for the past 24 years.

Genaha endured a long illness and fought bravely.  We will all miss her eternal optimism and passion for Lilydale High.

Our thoughts are with Genaha’s family at this very sad time.

We ask that you share this news with your child and understandably there will be various reactions and emotions.  The school has wellbeing supports in place and we encourage you to reach out as required.

Kind regards,

Wendy Powson

Genaha Thompson – Assistant Principal
