The weekend of July 3-4 fast approaches! It is hard to believe that we are already into week 5 of rehearsals. We will be performing “The Emperor and the Nightingale”, “Pirate Joe”, “The Pied Piper” and “Murder at Mornington Manor”. The Lantern Theatre will be putting tickets on sale soon!
All the actors have worked really hard and have been very creative. It’s going to be a cracking weekend!
This term some of our older children have been delving into the murky world of office politics! Using some of the improvisation, verbal and dialogue development skills they have been learning, the students explored different situations which they may even be faced with themselves in later life!
Our classes in Hillsborough and Nethergreen worked in small groups to perform a story called “They were here a minute ago…” Their imagination had no limits and we were amazed to see mini dramas ranging from mermaids to musicals to monsters!
The young students in our Hunters Bar Saturday class had their own mini bake-off situation with a session (including great props) based around the kitchen environment.
Other themes we have enjoyed this year include robots, a sleepover theme, fashion and what happens when we sulk!
It doesn’t seem to matter what wild and crazy ideas we throw at them, the students never cease to amaze us with the creations they come up with.
