Taking to the stage can be a nerve racking experience at the best of times but all students were able to overcome any stage fright to put on an impressive performance.
Students had been at the Riverina Drama Camp, a five day camp learning the ins and outs of theatre, play writing and performing.
“When those kids who have never done it before succeed, it is really beautiful,” camp organiser and drama teacher Liz Kidd said.
“It was a really positive finish to a great camp.”
The 500 strong audience including parents, siblings, friends and relatives packed the auditorium at Wagga High on Saturday May 23.
They were all impressed by the 110 students who took to the stage over the course of the evening.
“The parents were amazed when their kids who were a bit nervous did so well,” Ms Kidd said.
Performances included 10 group devised pieces by groups of 10 to 12 students.
These pieces had been developed by the group with the guidance of the tutor over the duration of the camp.
“These pieces are collaborative and they had to work as a team,” Ms Kidd said.
Different types of theatre performance were displayed by different groups of students including Commedia Del Arte, Melodrama scene, theatresport and beat poetry.
The students who performed these pieces were hand picked by tutors as the outstanding students in that area.
The Riverina Drama Camp was run from May 19 to 23 at the Borambola Sport and Recreation Centre.
Students who wish to take part in the camp next year can apply through their school in the first few weeks of term one next year.
