Trinity students perform a miracle
Year 11 Trinity Catholic College drama students have been busy rehearsing for their annual production, The Miracle by Lin Coughlan, which will be performed next Thursday, Friday and Saturday, October 1-3.
This play has had numerous productions in Britain since its first performance at the National Theatre in 2008.
It is written by an Irish playwright for performance by and for young people and follows the fortunes of Veronica Sheehan who, during a flood, encounters the statue of St Anthony coming up through the floor of her room. She seems to gain miraculous healing powers, especially for a boy in the town who was sent to Iraq.
This ensemble piece involves some 28 students working to bring this town to life.
The production of The Miracle fulfils the HSC syllabus requirements of giving Year 11 students the experience of live performance. It also provides eight Year 10 students with the opportunity of learning and operating technical aspects of production.
The Miracle is being staged in the Chanel Drama Studio on St Mary's site (Brunswick St) and each performance begins at 7pm.
Tickets are $10 and are now available from Trinity's St Mary's Site office.
