Students enjoy comic fantasy at St Catherine’s
STUDENTS at St Catherine’s Catholic College were treated to a comic fantasy adventure performed by theatre company Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre at their school last Tuesday.
Presented by Artslink Queensland, Marcus and the Manic Music Makers followed the story of Marcus, a young aspiring violinist overcome with anxiety about his upcoming Beethoven Society audition.
Director Michael Futcher crafted the play with imagination and humour, envisioning a heart-warming story of overcoming fear and selfdoubt to find fulfilment and passion.
“In this story we wanted to create a parallel to that moment when a child gives up on a hobby that they love,” Mr Futcher said.
“We wanted to show a potential future where the child rises to the challenge and finds new faith in their abilities.”
St Catherine’s Catholic College Year 7 teacher Peter Bates said it was a great production that had the students laughing and feeling inspired.
MUSIC FUN: St Catherine's Catholic College year 7 students Anthony Pendlebury, Chloe Horne-Lisle and Emenie Jensen enjoyed the vibrant comic performance of Marcus and the Manic Music Makers performed by Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre at their school last Tuesday.
