Recently I had the awesome opportunity of working with a talented group of Year 7/8 students and their wonderful teacher, Amanda Nicholas, on a work in progress performance of Greenarella at Gnowangerup District High School. This script is a fractured fairytale I wrote several years ago based on Cinderella, with an environmental theme.
We had a couple of Zoom sessions before I arrived and rehearsed for two and a half days solid (also learning short dance routines) before the cast performed in marvellous costumes for a small appreciative audience of younger students.
It was a joy to see these enthusiastic students take to drama and performing like fish to water and blossom creatively in such a short time. Bravo!
