Victorian Music Theatre Guild Awards Night

The Music Theatre Guild of Victoria Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation for the ongoing support, encouragement and development of non-professional music theatre around the State. As a member company, Aitken College submits its musical each year for inclusion in the annual awards. The College has been recognised with two nominations from 'Monty Python’s Spamalot', for Direction of a Musical and for Holly B as Female Actor in a Leading Role.


Holly has also been asked to reprise her role as Lady of the Lake and sing at the awards night on Saturday 14 December at Her Majesty’s Theatre in Ballarat. The night will highlight some of the best performances seen by the Guild Judges across the past twelve months and is well worth attending to see some of the best the State has on offer. Tickets for the night are $55 and are available by calling Fran on 0438 711 378.

Kool Skools Awards

The annual Kool Skools Awards Night will be held at Thornbury Theatre on Thursday 5 December from 6.00pm. Each year, the Awards Night is held to celebrate the very best tracks recorded as a part of the Kool Skools project that year. We are still awaiting the nominations list but we congratulate The Astro’s, who were invited to perform their original song, “Overdue” during the awards night.

Fairview Concert

The excitement is building for this year’s Fairview Concert, 'World of Colour'. As always, there are sure to be a few surprises when the 180 students from Prep to Year 2 take to the stage on Tuesday 26 November and Thursday 28 November. If you are yet to make your booking, there are less than 50 tickets remaining. From Monday, all remaining tickets will be available to those who wish to book extras.

Instrumental Music Enrolments

Students who have been taking private instrumental lessons should have brought home an Enrolment form for 2020 lessons by now. Many forms are rolling in and places are quickly filling up. Please get the intention forms back in before the end of this year so we can negotiate availability with the tutors. If you leave it until next year, we cannot guarantee a place as many of the tutors also work at other schools. If you have not received a form or are interested in signing your child up for lessons for the first time, additional forms are available from the school office or online through My Aitken. Go to
