Special Guests Mitchell Butel and Finegan Krukemeyer

15 September 2021

On Tuesday 7 September, is was a pleasure to welcome playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer and Mitchell Butel, Artistic Director of State Theatre Company South Australia to the College to speak with our Year 11 Drama students.

Both Butel and Kruckemeyer spoke about the inception of ideas behind the production and the strong messages they wanted to evoke to the audience about our responsibility towards our planet. The students were inspired by the processes they undertook to creatively implement a production from page to stage and how the artistic team of designers, actors, the director and the writer worked together to cohesively communicate a strong concept that resonated wit their audiences. The experience of speaking to these artists was encouraging to our students who are exploring their enriching pursuits in the performing arts.
