HSC Drama Showcase
HSC Drama students will present a showcase of their practical works on Friday 23 August at 6pm in The Playhouse. The school community is warmly invited to attend to support the girls in their final display of Individual Project and Group Devised Performances prior to their assessment by NESA markers.
We wish the girls every success for the next few weeks as they complete Trial Assessments and the NESA practical exams.
Saving SCEGGS commenced rehearsals this week with an enthusiastic dance/movement class. Dance Tutor, Amy Petsalis, lead the girls in an enthusiastic rendition of the Can-Can – a featured highlight of the play. How is it used? You’ll have to come and see.
The cast will complete the Dance classes over the next three weeks to support their movement skills, encourage company bonding and ensure much fun is had.
Saving SCEGGS by Linden Wilkinson plays in The Great Hall, November 21 to 23.
Festival Of Speech
The NHIS Festival of Speech will be conducted on Saturday 26 October at Meridan College. We have assembled a team for the Drama category who will construct a piece of theatre in response to the theme LOOK ME IN THE EYE. Our team consists of Year 10 students Mia Freeland, Hannah Mavrakis, Stella Middleditch, Isabella Habib and Samantha Jones.
I urge enthusiastic playgoers aged 15 to 20 to consider joining Playwave. This is a great way to see theatre presented in Sydney at affordable ticket prices. The program offers discount tickets to members and an opportunity to review theatre. Check it out.
St Peter’s Players
The new look St Peter’s Players is off and running with favourable reviews from the students participating. Year 5 girls have had much fun in their first experience with the program whilst secondary girls continue their enthusiastic work in Lights, Camera, Action and explore Acting techniques in Drama Bootcamp – led by our tutors Ms Romy Bartz and Mr Nick Gell.
