A wondrous production awaits with Masquerade taking centre stage at the School’s Drama Centre for four nights from next Wednesday.

The production takes the audience on a magical adventure as bumbling Jack Hare races against time to deliver a message from the moon to the sun, and follows the love between a parent and child.

“When Kit Williams gave Kate Mulvany permission to adapt his book into a play, one of his conditions was that it must be a play for 9 to 90 year olds, and so it is,” says production director Kalika Duck.

“It’s a truly beautiful show that combines the touching struggles of everyday people and the wild adventures of magical beings. Prepare yourself for a night of bracing honesty, wild imagination, special moments, great magic, loss, laughter and most importantly love.”

“The Midnite Youth Theatre Company’s production of Masquerade brings together 22 Year 9 and 10 students from Christ Church Grammar School, St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls, Methodist Ladies’ College, Presbyterian Ladies’ College, All Saints’ College and Shenton College.”

“These multi-talented performers have been rehearsing since early February, challenging their bodies, minds and hearts to bring this play to the stage. From composing original music to accompany the play’s song lyrics to twisting themselves high in the air on circus silks, their creativity and courage has known no bounds and I have been endlessly impressed by their willingness to reach both within and beyond themselves.”

Tickets to the production which runs from 16 to 19 May can be purchased through TryBooking.
