Our Stage 5 Drama students brought a fantastic theatrical experience to the Armidale Playhouse on June 21 and 22, and we are incredibly proud of them.

‘Hitler’s Daughter’ was the culmination of the clever cohort’s Semester 1 classes, where they worked together creating this production of the award-winning play by MonkeyBaa Theatre Company that tells the story of Heidi – Hitler’s Daughter – through the eyes of four Australian children Mark, Ben, Anna and Tracey.

Some girls worked on sets and props, some created projections and sound effects, while others directed their peers to stage the play or created marketing and advertising.

As well as helping the students hone their speech and drama skills, this was a wonderful experience and opportunity for the class to be part of a play that encourages us to think about diversity, tolerance, moral responsibility, and courage.

We congratulate all the girls and Mrs Jo Wysel, our Head of Creative and Performing Arts, on their achievement.
