Grin & Tonic

Grin & Tonic Performers

On Tuesday, 9th July, every Grade 10 student was invited to attend a Grin and Tonic Shakespeare performance called Heartfail. The production included several classic works, such as Romeo & Juliet and Pyramus & Thisbe. They incorporated humour with tragedy to keep the audience immersed in the wonderful world of Shakespeare.

 The two actors from Grin and Tonic invited numerous students to be featured in Pyramus and Thisbe. The Bob Spearitt Assembly Hall was full of eager students hanging on every word spoken. The performers had the students and staff in the palms of their hands as they used props and costumes to create a comedic perspective of two well-known tragedies.

 Overall it was a terrific performance by the group enjoyed by all as they learned about Shakespeare in an unconventional way.
