School resumes for all students on Tuesday 1st May 2018

"Year 12 Senior Drama Production"

Based on the classic Hitchcock film adaptation of John Buchan's novel, this adaptation, presented by the Senior Drama ensemble, blends parodies of Film Noir, Thrillers and classic "stiff upper lip" sensibility of British cinema of the 1930s with zany theatrical comedy. With a cast of 10 playing over 130 roles throughout this fast paced thrill ride of a script, the 39 Steps incorporates everything that Newtown drama students love about theatre.

3rd - 5th May 2018 at 7:30pm in the Studio Theatre
