On Friday 19 February, 12 very excited Drama students waltzed into the Regal Theatre to see The Tiger Lillies Perform Hamlet. It seemed like a rather unlikely combination: the music of cult punk cabaret masters, Tiger Lillies, and the words of Shakespeare, but this musical theatre, “opera grotesque” version of Hamlet was an unexpected thrill. Combining physical theatre, circus elements, bawdy musical numbers and spectacular visuals, this is as entertaining as Shakespeare gets – we loved every moment!
The Year 11 and 12 students will now take on the role of Theatre Critic as they write professional reviews on the performance. Experiencing live theatre such as this is one of the many joys that the Drama course offers and we felt very fortunate to see such an awesome production!
