Annual Drama Production
The Academy’s drama production this academic year will be William Shakespeare’s famous play Macbeth. The play has been adapted by our Drama teacher, Mr. Wandera, to make it more accessible to audiences of all ages, but the flavour and intent of Shakespeare’s original work has been retained.
As Macbeth is a set book for Grade 11 and IB, students from Grade 10 to IB2 will especially benefit from attending this performance. However, the entire cast and crew have been working extremely hard to ensure that everyone who comes to see the play will have an enjoyable and entertaining evening.
The production was originally scheduled to run in November 2004, but due to unavoidable circumstances, the performances have been rescheduled for 27 - 29 January, 2005. There will be four performances, daily evening shows, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m., and a matinee show on Saturday 29th, from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.
The play will be put on at the newly-refurbished Kenya National Theatre, located opposite Norfolk Hotel. Patrons of the KNT will know what an excellent venue this is for a play; anyone who has not attended a recent performance at the KNT will be pleasantly surprised at the new-look theatre.
Tickets are on sale through the School secretary, at Kshs.350 for adults and Kshs.250 for students. Matinee prices are Kshs.250 for adults and Kshs.150 for students. Please book your tickets in advance to avoid any disappointments.
