Once again, the Drama students have demonstrated their passion for acting and performed in the Drama Showcase on Wednesday afternoon. This term, it was not only Year 7 students, but some Year 9 and 10 students as well.
The audience was entertained by a variety of assessment performances from Group Laban performances with unique soundtracks and a variety of monologue from Shakespeare and contemporary scripts. Some students took it upon themselves to write and perform work they have devised in their own time as well. A group of students from years 7 – 10, also performed a piece titled, “Come Alive”. This group has engaged in the full playbuilding process to research, devise and rehearse a unique piece based on death and the afterlife from the theme of ‘come alive’.
Following the show, the actors and audience shared in some nibbles and soaked up the atmosphere of many students’ first successful performance at JPC.
A huge round of applause to Lilith Prado and Adau Kuir who not only performed, but also were the MCs for the afternoon.
