Senior production receives rave reviews

Posted on in Senior School

The senior Drama 3 and Theatre Performance 3 classes recently presented Sophocles’ classic Greek tragedy, Antigone for audiences at the Moonah Arts Centre.

The play follows Antigone as she fights for justice and the rightful burial of her brother. The timeless themes of political power, gender and justice were explored in our modern, dystopian take on the play.

We asked our audiences to connect the play with our current global experiences and confront our own consciences, considering how our choices and fears influence our world.

The cast rehearsed for three months to bring the production to stage and were supported in the theatre by a talented tech crew.

Thank you to all those who supported our students through attending the production.

Students involved: 

Drama 3 – Hamish Chilcott, Davina Cox, Jordana Drew, Adalia Hauler, Isabella O’Shea, Mikayla Penglase, Bella Smithies-Sharples, AyJay Thomson

Theatre Performance 3 – Madelin Bannister, Ash Cripps, Samantha Lowry, Hannah Lucas, Maddison Rolls, Luka Sandler, Grace Simonetis, Laura Thomson, Eliza Topham

Tech Crew – Madeline Young, Lucy McKenna, Amber King
