2021 APATA Performing Arts Student of the Year – Jackson Hughesman

Feb 9, 2022

Welcome to 2022 and we are back on the mic with Jackson Hughesman, winner of the 2021 APATA Performing Arts Student of the Year Award.

Jackson is heading into year twelve at St Patricks College, QLD and we thought it would be a great opportunity to catch up to find out what the award meant to him and what he hopes to achieve this year.

While 2022 has hardly begun Jackson has already played the role of Tevye in Brisbane Junior Theatre‘s January production of Fiddler on the Roof, with lots more to come.

Balancing schoolwork, training, rehearsals, and school captaincy we wanted to share Jackson’s perspective as a performing arts student looking at the road ahead. His hopes and dreams, and the realities of studying for a career in the arts during Covid.

A fun chat with a bright young man who represents the future of performing arts in this country.

Mentions:

St Patrick’s College, Shorncliffe, QLD

Brisbane Junior Theatre

Brisbane Musical Theatre

Lee Lewis: Artistic Director, Queensland Theatre
