The team came in second overall in a tight competition against eight other school teams. They wowed the crowd in the first half playing a “Death in a Chicken Shop” scene, and then with their diabolical prison break in a “Character Swap” scene.
The second half featured an open scene set at a building on Stonehenge, and at a child’s birthday party at a bowling alley where emotions ran hot during their final spectacular game, an “Oscar Winning Moment”.
All of this was made up completely on the spot, in response to suggestions given by the judges.
Along with the other winning school, the IGS team of Coco Gillies, Oliver Parry, Stirling Stewart, Hugo Griscti and Madiba Doyle-Lambert will go through to the Grand Final at the Enmore Theatre on 23 June at 2pm.
“We thought we’d get third or fourth but when they called our name in second place I couldn’t believe it!” said team member Oliver Parry.
I would like to thank our dedicated Theatresports Drama Tutors Maddy Stedman, Queenie Colquhoun and Lukian Adams, all IGS Drama Alumni, for their excellent coaching!” said IGS Director of Dramatic Arts Rita Morabito.
