Year 11 Drama students experience Twelfth Night

Thursday 05 Jul 2018 by Senior School

This term the Year 11 Drama students had the opportunity to view Queensland Theatre’s contemporary adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.

The performance follows protagonist Viola, who, washed ashore and separated from her twin brother, must learn to survive alone in an exotic foreign country. Disguising herself as a man, she quickly becomes entangled in a web of amorous pursuits gone awry.

Shakespeare’s hilarious and lovable characters are brought to life through all new songs by legendary composer Tim Finn and a cast of comedic greats including Jason Klarwein, Christen O’Leary and Jessica Tovey.

It was a great opportunity to engage with live Theatre, where students gain appreciation for performance and enjoy an entertaining experience together.
