Year 10 Drama students see Jasper Jones at QPAC

Sunday 16 Sep 2018 by Senior School

Last weekend the year 10 Drama students had the opportunity to view Queensland Theatre’s gripping production of Jasper Jones.

Kate Mulvany’s adaptation of Craig Silvey’s novel is a bittersweet, joyous coming-of-age yarn set in a community where every weatherboard house hides a dark secret. The play follows Charlie Bucktin and Jasper Jones who come upon a gruesome crime out by the dam. Somewhere between Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird and classic movie Stand by Me, the stirring and sometimes harrowing performance thoroughly captivated the students.

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