Being in the cast of the Year 9/10 production of The Virtuous Burglar, we can happily say that it was one of the best experiences of 2017.
After a terms worth of rehearsals ‘The Virtuous Burglar’ took to the stage. Meeting every Tuesday gave us the chance to socialise with other students whilst doing something we all enjoyed. Playing a character can be challenging but it is a wonderful opportunity to get outside of your comfort zone and show an audience what you are capable of. With two casts over Years 9 and 10, it’s fair to say many close friendships were formed. Working with a partner of the same role provides a different way to learn more about your character. Audrey played the burglar’s wife as did Ella in Year 10. Phoebe played Anna as did Madi in Year 9.
We had many moments where you would be able to hear the psychotic Maria Tornati (the burglar’s wife) screaming across the CM Wood and a time where Anna took a turn to Kath and Kim. We enjoyed learning the script and seeing the show come together with all of our talented friends. Between running lines, dancing the ‘tangerine’ and eating pizza, it’s safe to say this is all something we really enjoyed because of our love of drama but also because of the jokes that were shared and the amount of times we all realised (thanks to Maria) ciette tousie pattsi! We are so proud to have been apart of such an amazing performance!
