On Friday 26th February our Year 8 and 9 students had the opportunity to see a play in German. The play was called “Zwillinge” and was performed by German actors.
The play was about Annika who needed help with her practical drama exam and Lukas who agreed to practise with her. Lukas has an identical twin brother called Dominik but Annika does not know this. Dominik, unlike Lukas, is a fantastic actor full of ideas and whenever Lukas was out of the room he stepped in and pretended to be Lukas. Annika was totally unaware that she was actually rehearsing with two different people, creating confusion and frustration as one minute Lukas was great and enthusiastic and the next he was not interested and silly.
The play encouraged students to get involved and comment on the action and some students even had the chance to go up on stage and participate in the action.
This was the third time the Onatti Theatre Company performed a play in German and again it was very entertaining and amusing and enjoyed by both students and staff alike.
