More than enough talent for col­lege’s comedic play

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By ABBY BROWN

The Mata­mata Col­lege Year 13 class had more people want­ing to act than the play they are putting on, Le Sud, had char­ac­ters so some have had to share char­ac­ters.

It has caused some vari­a­tion in in­ter­pre­ta­tion, but not to a huge de­gree.

‘‘The core of the char­ac­ter is the same but we give them a bit of quirk,’’ Grace Drysdale-Dunn said.

She shares the role of Do­minique with Kelly Peter­son.

Ja­cob Teers and Quinn Wiles share a char­ac­ter called Lyn­d­sey.

Both said they en­joyed play­ing the snarky char­ac­ter, with­out hav­ing to suf­fer the reper­cus­sions of his mean

also com­ments.

Tiana Moana, who plays Moana Matakana, en­joyed play­ing the char­ac­ter so much, that she is be­com­ing the char­ac­ter at ran­dom times.

‘‘You get into so much that you start say­ing lines in math class,’’ she laughed.

The play’s premise is that the French suc­cess­fully colonised the South Is­land in 1839 and the boom­ing South Zealand or Le Sud’s con­trasted with the English colonised North Is­land which is in per­ma­nent re­ces­sion.

Caitlin Ben­nett, who plays Tama, said her favourite part of the drama process was watch­ing it all come to­gether.

Le Sud will be per­formed at the col­lege on July 22 and 23 and July 25 at 7pm with $10 door sales.
