Middle Years Drama Company
The Middle Years Drama Company is a new program for students from Year 7 to Year 9 to allow them to become part of a collaborative creative community. It aims to cultivate essential skills that benefit their academic, emotional and social wellbeing to develop a healthy appreciation of culture and arts. It allows students to become informed citizens who experientially develop self-confidence, imagination, cooperation and communication skills through performance.
During Term 1 and Term 2 students will have the opportunity to playbuild and devise original works, learn improvisational skills and explore a variety of monologues and duologues. This training culminates in creating group pieces and duologues to compete in the Sydney Eisteddfod throughout May to June.
In Term 3 and Term 4 students will work towards putting on a Middle Years Production, a wonderful opportunity to act and experience the extensive, demanding and breathtaking nature of the wonderful world of theatre.
Senior Troupe: Year 9 to Year 12
Middle Years Troupe: Year 6 to Year 8
Theatresports is a form of improvisational theatre that uses the format of a competition for dramatic effect. Every year MLC School students take part in the Theatresports Schools Challenge (TSC). In teams of three to five students, they create one, two and three minute improvised scenes live on stage, judged and scored by improvisation professionals.
The Grand Final takes place at the Enmore Theatre, Sydney.
