Powerful Performances at Drama Moderation
Drama students in Year 12 performed their drama moderations at Norden Farm before the end of the term. An impressive amount of hard work went into these performances with some very powerful pieces performed.
Two groups performed and the storylines are below;
Headstrong Melchior and naïve Wendla stumble into each other’s arms, passionate and curious, while anxious Moritz struggles to live up to stringent expectations of society and is driven to suicide because he can not pass his examinations.
So close is Wedekind to the soul of the child that he succeeds in unveiling before our eyes with a most gripping touch, its joys and sorrows, its hopes and despair, its struggles and tragedies.
Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf
George, a history professor at a university and his wife Martha - daughter of the university president — invite a young faculty couple home for an alcohol-fuelled night of savage name-calling and psychological brutality. The Chaos, cruelty and senselessness of human lives are laid bare.
Magda Olivier, Drama Teacher commented;
“The work was very well received, appreciated and praised by the moderator. He felt that the chosen texts were very challenging and that the students were able to meet the expectations of the texts and the style, displaying excellent acting skills.”
