The Junior School Drama Club took to the stage in their finest Christmas attire to present their end of year performance in Week 8. The classic Dickens tale ‘A Christmas Carol’ was brought to life by our talented Year 4-6 Drama students in the style of Reader’s Theatre, a theatre format which focuses less on memorisation and more on reading with confidence, expression and character.
Addison Delauney (Year 5) carried off a grumpy, sullen and ultimately joyful Eliza Scrooge and led a talented cast:
Lindy-Louise Papenfus (Mrs Cratchit), Ruby Briggs-Dyer (Young Cratchit), Ashni Pindolia (Narrator)
Isabel Davies (Gentlewoman), Joshua Papenfus (Marley), Paighe Halliday (Young Cratchit), Abby Bolger (Red Faced Gentlewoman), Thomas Jacklin (Peter), Kalel Popadynec (Boy) and Ryan Andrews (Fellow)
Kiera Perks (Niece/Narrator), Amelie Fewell (Flame), Jasmine Okello (First Ghost), Lachlan Hannaford (Fezziwig), Jesse Sokol (Bob Cratchit), Mia-Mae Vella (Second Ghost), Harry Andrews (Fellow), Mia Yeatman (Narrator), Angel Mehton (Narrator), Erin Butterworth (Narrator), Michelle Owusu (Narrator), Isabella Hughes (Narrator/Third Ghost) and Mary Zeradah Danoyo (Narrator)
Congratulations must go to all the students involved. It was a wonderful culmination of the 2018 Drama Club and a testament to the work of the staff. Thanks to Mrs Dorota Fretwell and Miss Sophie Lester for their work throughout the year. Thanks also to Middle and Senior School Students who assisted for the performance and during the rehearsal process.
The future of Drama at Holy Cross is very bright indeed. Merry Christmas!
