Julienne Simbajon and David Chen – Year 11
Ellyza Malibiran and MingQi See – Year 10
For the past three months, these four students have been known as the “Chitty Family”. Their roles as Caractacus (David), Jemima (Ellyza), Jenny (MingQi) Potts and Truly Scrumptious (Julienne) are the main four characters in this year’s Secondary production. In addition to having the most lines and songs to memorise, they also had the amazing opportunity to be filmed in front of the green screen and were shown flying in the car at the performances.
Julienne, David, Ellyza, and MingQi are incredible young people who also shine academically, participate in other performing arts activities and sport, and are always willing to help with any project.
All four of them have been at BSB for over five years, and this is their fourth school production that they have participated in. They are all talented musicians and had to sing one on a part in harmony at various points in the show, which is no easy task! Each year they have been challenged by different roles and, despite the huge time commitment and the long hours of rehearsal, they are the first ones to sign up and audition to be in the production!
They have shared their stories and thoughts below.
