Scene Project

On Monday 5 August, the Drama Club participated in Queensland Theatre's annual Scene Project. Throughout the project, students had the opportunity to work with a newly commissioned script, where they developed it into a 15 minute performance. Students presented their performance, and watched other schools from the district present theirs. They were also able to view Queensland Theatre's professional version of the script, and interacted with actors and directors throughout the day.

 

The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as it is a celebration of the Arts and the value of creativity. Drama Club is already looking forward to next year's project!
