Shakespeare Carnival State Champions
Congratulations to our incredible Year 10 Drama students, Karli Musara, Sophie Douglas and Julia Leggat, who won their section at the State Final of the Shakespeare Carnival on Saturday 18 June 2016.
The prestigious panel of judges, including Damien Ryan (Artistic Director Sport for Jove), Adam Cook (Course Director at the Actors Centre Australia) and Blazey Best (one of Australia's most admired female actors), commented that they were particularly impressed by our students willingness to inhabit the dark and ugly side of Shakespeare's imagery and their ability to work as an ensemble.
The competition, that is run just as Shakespeare would have intended, with minimal set and costumes, allows the language and actor's skill to shine. Our three wonderful young performers filled the large York Theatre with their fine voices, inventive theatricality and brave characterisation. Well done girls!
It is hoped that the event will soon become a national competition, with the winners being sent to perform at The Globe, in London.
