Over 100 students from Years 7-12 at Lowther Hall are preparing to debut their stage production of ‘The School for Scandal’.
Richard B Sheridan’s ‘The School for Scandal’ is a comedy of manners. It is a play that satirises the behaviour and customs of the wealthy and leisure classes, using witty dialogue and an intricate plot that highlight the characters’ shortcomings. The premise of the play also echoes modern-day use and misuse of Social Media.
Actors, dancers, musicians and backstage co-ordinators have been rehearsing for months in preparation for the the 2-hour long play that will be performed at The Clocktower Theatre in Moonee Ponds.
Parents and volunteers have worked tirelessly to create stage props and extravagant costumes to bring ‘The School for Scandal’ to life.
Lowther Hall’s Head of Drama and Dance, Celia Brown, said ‘it is always exciting to work with a big cast of girls who love acting and dancing. I am pleased our students have the opportunity to showcase their talent in this way.’
Tickets are available at The Clocktower box office, or www.clocktowercentre.com.au for Friday 1 May 7.30pm, and Saturday 2 May at 1.30pm and 7.30pm.
