RGGS Theatre Company Debut

April 5, 2017 at 3:42 pm

File_001 File_002On Monday 27 March – which just so happened to be World Theatre Day – our Drama co-curricular club, RGGS Theatre Company (RTC) debuted the first performances of our Semester 1 season. Exploring the styles of Realism and Political Theatre, participating students from years 7 – 12 performed two student-developed and directed works exploring relationships and equity.

RTC is designed to provide students with authentic theatre making experiences and is unlike the traditional school production model, as students are expected to pitch, devise, write, direct and stage their own concepts, realising work right from the page to the stage. Our girls rose ably to the task, embracing the challenge and expanding their abilities as theatre practitioners.

Congratulations to the following students:
