​Junior Drama Festival WINNERS!
‘The Lottery’

On Saturday 6th August our Year 8 students competed in the Drama Festival competition, held at Palm Beach Currumbin State High School. Their play called ‘The Lottery’ was an ensemble piece that they rehearsed for since April. It required them to not only work perfectly together as a team but also to perform characters well above their years. I was a very proud Director, to see these students perform at a quality that was well above many of the private schools that entered the competition. There are some amazingly talented students in this group so keep your eyes peeled for them in the future!

We managed to bring home the following 4 trophies and 10 High Commended certificates:
Outstanding Actor Trophy - Cassandra van Eck
Best Supporting Actor Trophy - Zach Radford-Handley
Highly Commended Certificates - Luke Webster, Lance Kerr, Tiana Storm, Ethan Hough, Sarah Soler-Torrijos, Cassandra van Eck, Zach Radford-Handley & certificates 3 key moments in the production that the adjudicator loved.
 
But the most exciting one was ‘Best Overall Play’ – announcing Southport State High School the winners in the Junior section of the festival!
 
Congratulations to Year 8 on your amazing win and thank you for inspiring me!
