Congratulations to our amazing HSC Drama student Jacob Brown. Jacob has been selected to perform at DramaWorks 2019, a showcase of students who have achieved HSC excellence in their Individual and Group Performances. As part of the HSC Drama course students can elect to perform a monologue that must run between 6 – 8 minutes. Jacob has been working diligently all year to refine his performance of Dennis, an adaptation of Evelyn Waugh’s ‘The Loved One’. Using transformational acting techniques, and his superb skill in creating dynamic sound effects, Jacob plays over 10 characters in under 7 minutes in Dennis. His selection to perform in DramaWorks is indicative of the excellence of his performance skills. We’re extremely proud of Jacob and are looking forward to watching him perform in the matinee performance at The Byron Bay Theatre next Tuesday. For those
