Over the last two terms, several boys and girls from Years 9 and 10 participated in production rehearsals after school on Tuesdays and on Sundays. We all had a lot of fun and most of us made new friends from different forms or year levels. On Thursday and Friday of last week, we had the opportunity to perform our plays in front of our teachers, family and peers. The first play, Conflict, written by Nicholas Walton, was about two Stone Age mates, Richard and Stanley and their daily struggles to impress stone age women; the second play, The Crimson Stain, was about a group of school aged children trying to prepare and perform their play before the due date; and the last play, Murder under the couch, was a classic British murder mystery set in the usually peaceful Bide-A-Wee bed and breakfast. Overall, it was a great night and we left the CM Wood on Friday feeling fulfilled, having thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
