"A Night of Comedy"

The Drama Department would like to invite you to “A Night of Comedy”. The summative performance of grade 8 will take place on Wednesday, 22 May at the ISA theatre at 18:00.

What makes a play funny? How do you write comedy? How do you act in a comedy? All these are questions that the 8th-grade students had to find answers to this year. After a brief introduction to the main elements and conventions of Drama, they were introduced to the art of Comedy. The students split up into smaller groups and had to come up with an idea for their own short comedy play, write the play and rehearse it until the moment that they would present it to an audience. So they were responsible from inception to presentation with a little guidance from me. They worked really hard and we hope you enjoy the results of that hard work.
