Drama at Vale Verde International school

In the weeks leading up to the end of term, audiences were entertained to a wide variety of performances directed by Victor Torcato, a teacher of drama. The playlets consisted of both Portuguese and English language plays.

For the Portuguese language plays, the Primary school children acted out traditional fairy tales, namely Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Peter Pan and Beauty & the Beast. Vale Verde is an international school with an increasing number of different nationalities so it really was to their credit that these youngsters managed to learn all their words and act out their parts with such conviction. It was clear that the students, age range 4-11 years, were really enjoying themselves.
The Secondary production also consisted this year of three 45 minute adaptations of-well known plays, namely ‘The Lion King’, performed by Year 7;‘The Rocky Horror Show (not)’ acted by students of Year 8, and a script written by the students of Year 9 based very loosely on the story line and music of ‘Mamma Mia’. The sheer variety of subjects ensured an entertaining afternoon but who could fail to be impressed by the quality of acting and singing, the costumes and the remarkable transformations of our students through the make-up artists Clare Broomfield and Mandy Ware.

Year 10 crowned the year with a performance of Arthur Miller’s ‘A View from the Bridge’ directed by Dianne Ferrari, their Art and Literature teacher.
