MIDDLE SCHOOL THEATRE TRIP: STUDENT REFLECTION
by Harry C, G9
On Wednesday, November 9th the Middle School stormed Granville Island to watch the play It’s a Wonderful Life, performed by the Arts Club Theatre. This holiday classic was adapted from the 1947 film of the same name. While the theatre experience is much more ‘real’ and visceral than watching a movie, students were impressed by the multimedia production which actually included short clips from the movie at various points in the performance.
The students enjoyed this play because of the amazing actors and believable script; even the angels were relatable! While having the opportunity to attend this play as an entire Middle School was an amazing experience and the whole day was fun, we didn’t realise that the play was also going to be very thought-provoking.
Overall, the second annual Middle School theatre trip was a tremendous success. The students would like to thank all of the teachers, and especially Ms. Moore, for making this day possible.
- “I really liked this play.” (Dale, G9)
- “I loved everything about it. Everything!” (Charles, G7)
- “I like the message and that we could relate to it; we shouldn’t take our lives for granted.” (Khayali, G7)
