Year 11 Theatre Night

The Year Eleven Theatre Studies performance this semester was a shortened version of the Greek play, Medea by Euripides. It follows the story of Greek legend Jason (of Jason and the Argonauts) and his wife, Medea. When he marries another woman, she becomes outraged and swears revenge on her husband, his new wife and his new wife’s father.

This semester we were given the option of performing in the style of Greek Theatre or Commedia Dell’Arte (an Italian improvised style of comedy). We picked Greek Theatre and learnt the individual conventions of the piece.

With many students taking on more than acting, the class performed, stage managed, designed costumes and masks, hair and makeup, organised the foyer and advertising as well as directed the piece.
We were privileged to be under the guidance of our amazing and dedicated teacher Ms Carly Doctor.

We would like to thank all the friends and family who came to watch our performance, as well as Nick Xanthoudakis, Adian and Myles, who were our lighting technicians on the night. It has been an amazing experience and we have all grown together as a class as we progress further into our studies.
