Collegiate drama students set to take the stage

ST Michael’s Collegiate senior drama students are busily preparing for their production of “Cosi”.

The play follows the story of a young Sydney amateur theatre director who is offered a job with a program for the rehabilitation of mentally ill patients in an institution.

With weeks of rehearsals under their belt, the cast of nine are making final preparations as the performance represents part of their assessment at pre-tertiary level.

“Girls’ schools have been proven to [provide] great opportunities for leadership, and exposure to the performing arts only enhances that,” St Michael’s Collegiate dance and drama co-ordinator Jane Polley said.

“This performance is a chance for the students to gain real experience in a 250-seat theatre, as well as being exposed to both front and back of house responsibilities.”

Cosi will be shown on Thursday 12 May and Friday 13 May at 7pm in the McNeill Performing Arts Centre, located on the corner of Barrack and Davey streets in Hobart.

Tickets are available at the Collegiate senior school office or at the door.
