The awe-inspiring Year 11/12 drama classes of 2014 travelled to Melbourne on an excursion to view two plays ‘Yellow Moon’ and ‘Night on Bald Mountain’. 

‘Yellow Moon’ was invaluable to the drama students in relation to their group work.  It showed them how to creatively enact scene changes when actors are unable to leave the view of the audience.

“This play was undoubtedly everyone’s favourite, and we are certain it shall stay with us in our memories for a long time. It was just that spectacular,“ said students Isobella Mills and Michaela Gersbach.

The play ‘Night on the Bald Mountain’, a black comedy, tested the maturity of the audience, the students said.

“We do confess to have jumped in terror, gasped in shock and had trouble closing our mouths at times,“ Isobella and Michaela said.

The students were given a tour of two theatres in the Arts Centre complex. “The tour helped the students to envision their major works, and see something of the world of the dramatic society,” the students said.
