Performing Arts


So far in our Year Ten Drama class we have started learning about the history of the concentration camp Auschwitz in preparation of our performance of selected scenes from the play The Investigation by Peter Weiss. The play is a trial of the Nazis that ran the camp and the crimes they committed. Our class is responsible for interpreting the script, this means we are going to have to add punctuation to the script since it is deliberately lacking it.

We will have to design a set to perform on, choose how the lights are going to positioned, what sounds are to be integrated into the play and what the actors will be wearing.  At the end of this month the Year Ten Drama class we will traveling into the city to watch a professional performance of the play the crocodile.

As part of Unit 3 Theatre Studies, students have been working together to create a full-length production of the Pulitzer Prize winning, Glengarry Glen Ross, written by David Mamet. The Year 12 boys have selected a production role each between roles including Set, Costume, Lighting and Sound, and will be in full control of designing and creating these specific areas of the play in order to enhance the show.

These skills have been built upon throughout Year 11 Theatre Studies to now be put into action for this cohesive performance. On top of the production roles, all students will be acting in the show. The performance will run from 18 – 19 May in a couple of areas throughout the college. Ticketing information will be published in Term 2.
