The Rather Large Day Out - Saturday 12 September
Our biennial Rather Large Day Out will be held on Saturday 12 September at the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts at Waikato University, when we will celebrate the Arts at Morrinsville College. The following is a brief synopsis of one of the plays that will be presented by our students:
Revenge of the Amazons by Jean Betts and W. Shakespeare. This comedy turns Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream on it's head as we enter the world of warring fairies, turbulent love triangles and a feminist theatre group. A play for older students and adults, this one will have you laughing from start to finish. Playhouse theatre 5:15pm.
Chook Chook by Fiona Farrell. This funny and thought-provoking one act play is all about four chickens in a battery farm. Is this all there is to life? What if there is something more? Year 11 Drama students present this comedy at the Playhouse theatre at 2:45pm.
Whenua by Louise Keenan. This one act play is our entry in the Norfolk Island Theatre Festival in the September holidays. It is a play about families, secrets and belonging, guaranteed to make you laugh and be entertained. Playhouse theatre at 7:20pm
Toasted by William (Bill ) Walker. Our Year 11 Drama students present this murder mystery spoof. Who killed Poppy Tops, the most popular girl in the hostel? Watch as all the suspects are interrogated by Detective Sergeant Sharon Sharp and Constable Keen. Great fun for the whole family in the Playhouse theatre at 3:35pm.
