› FRODO, GANDALF, ARAGORN, LEGOLAS, GIMLI; NOTHING WAS LEFT ASIDE IN THIS MAGNIFICENT INTERPRETATION OF J.R.R. TOLKIEN’S WORK
On Monday June 17th, we had the chance to watch the play The Lord of the Rings, presented by the English Department’s Drama Club. Students between Year 5 and 12, with the help of Saint Margaret’s girls, were the protagonists of this remarkable presentation, that with no doubt at all, demonstrated teachers and classmates that the actors and actresses’ skills and abilities go far beyond the classroom or the sports’ field.
For most of the people in the audience, the language and the clothes used in this play were really amazing. And, if we look back a little bit, this was not the first time that they presented an adapted play from a movie, because in late last year, they had already amazed us with Harry Potter. And this is, of course, another step that will hopefully make this Drama Club last in time, demonstrating the high level of bilingualism of the students.
The only negative aspect of the presentation was not exactly fault of either the actors or from the organisation, but from the public that attended. They behaved with no respect at all for their classmates and teachers’ hard work, making noises in every single moment that the lights went off. Although this, the play was a real success, and the people involved in it should feel more than satisfied.
The English Department has already confirmed that, around November or December, they will present Toy Story, a play that we hope reaches the same success than Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings.
