Note from the Creative Supervisor (Sarah Whitwam):
Well, we have finally arrived at our point of reckoning and oh what a journey ... The Theatre Studies Students have interpreted this classic medieval morality tale using an eclectic mix of theatrical styles and genres and a touch of humour.
Thank-you to the cast and crew for all the hard work they put in to create a memorable theatrical experience.
And thanks to you the audience, for coming with us on the journey.
We hope you enjoy the production and heed knowledge's advice - "if you stare into the void for long enough sooner or later it stares back at you".
Special Thanks to these Alia College staff members:
To the Cast and Crew of Everyman,
Tonight I had the pleasure of being invited to see your production. Apart from the fact that it was a VCE presentation I had no information on what I was going to see. I must say it was a very positive surprise and a fantastic way to spend an evening.
Over the years I have studied drama at university and performed in many productions throughout Australia, and I love any opportunity to be in the company of creative and inspiring individuals.
I was struck by your use of four very difficult performance spaces, which as you self admitted would have presented you with many technical obstacles from lighting, to sound, to audience sight lines. You did a great job of using levels to not only aid the audience, but to create a sense of difference with each scene. This, along with your visual and scripted clues, helped us to identify emotive and character changes.
Having a character set up the play and allowing the audience to associate with them as a guide provided smoothness and clarity as to when and how to move. Which, in a play such as yours, kept my attention on what was happening and alleviated any sense of confusion.
It was clear that your focus was holistic, with impressive lighting and sound along with imaginative costumes and even mask work. Your four masked character trait creature was mesmerising and left me wanting more of the intriguing choreography.
I guess what I am trying to say is well done!! You had a great cast, especially the lead characters, and a well rehearsed crew. As mentioned, it really was a fun way to enjoy a night out and I thank you all for the experience. Best of luck with your future projects, you clearly have a lot of talent in performance and production and I look forward to the next instalment!
