White Poppies

Best wishes to the Drama students of St Mary’s College who are combining with the young ladies from St Ursula’s College to perform “White Poppies” by Sue Saunders. This play is about the character Tom Headley, who enlists underage in the Great War where he and his friends head straight to the front line as tunnellers. Eighty years later a young schoolgirl sets out to research her great grandparents and uncovers the full story.This is a moving and engaging tale.

I congratulate all students for the commitment and enthusiasm they have shown towards this production and I very much look forward to joining with parents and visitors to the College to experience and enjoy this drama production. Performances will be on Thursday, 10th and Friday, 11th November at 7.00pm. The production will be held at the Armitage Theatre and tickets can be purchased from The Empire Theatre, $10 Adults and $5 Students. I thank the following teachers who will assist: Mr John Condon (Director of Art & Drama), Mr John Parker, Mrs Liz Frame, Ms Jen Morgan, Mrs Leah Dempster, Miss Angela Collins, Miss Jen Smeed, Mr Ryan Baines, Ms Sharon Collins, Mr Dave Roy, Mrs Jo Jaenke, Mrs Judy Barbe, Miss Bec Bastion, Mrs Louise Rapson, Mr Rod Hickey, Mr Paul Grealy, Mrs Shari Pauli, Mrs Tammy Banks and Mrs Kerrie Connolly. I look forward to seeing our College family support and encourage the boys during this performance. Goodluck gentleman.
