Twelve Angry Men Update

The Year 11 & 12 Drama students have jumped straight into rehearsals for the Senior Drama Production of Twelve Angry Men this term after preparations in the summer holidays. The cast is an incredible mix of talented and enthusiastic ATAR and General Drama students who are mastering the New Yorker accent and handling some complex themes with care and maturity. This production is a difficult show to stage and perform due to the subtle and minimalist set as well as the demands on the actors to remain on stage for the entire performance. Put it in your calendars (Thurs & Fri, Week 9) so you don’t miss this wonderful production directed by Mr. Dan Jonkov. More information about tickets coming soon.
