Our Year 10 Drama class performed a satirical performance called the 10 best worst things about high school. The play was written by M.G. Davidson. This performance is about the different things high school students experience, for example friends, school clubs, field trips, cinema, gradation, prom and sports. Therefore, we have Narrator 1 and Narrator 2 that take us to those experience. Narrator 2 and Narrator 1 have a debate about why high school is the best or the worst. Narrator 2 is boring, shy and sometimes he can be angry when he doesn’t get his way. Narrator 1, She just loves high school She is smart, joyful spirt and always acts euphoric.

In the exam scene, Narrator 2 tried to cheat on Lizzie’s exams paper. He falls over on his chair making the whole atmosphere fall instantly tense. The students and the teacher are shocked by his cheating. After than the sirens come in, and me and the second cops ran out as quickly as we could. Me and the cop back to back position much like the characters on Charlies Angels. I delivered my line ‘’We wanna throw the book at him’.

The set varied, therefore it needed to be simple and easy to perform. We used small black stage blocks in the entire performance that symbolised chairs. To communicate with the audience that we are in another scene, the stage blocks would be moved around by actors to represent a change in location, for example, when the exam scene finished, we had to quickly put the stage blocks in two to signify that we were in a dating scene; the popcorn buckets was another element that suggested that we were participating in a movie theatre. Each performance we would have different sounds that would contribute to a particular scene. For example, the first scene had a school bell sound, that suggested that students are coming to class. The second scene, had students playing sports and cheering very excitably; when the students saw coach Jason their stayed stagnant and coach Jason told them to do 50 laps, the students obeyed and ran slowly with the supports of the music Chariots of fire. The third scene, had some rainforest sounds contributing to the set of the field trip. Scene five was set in a sports day location. Scene seven was set in an exam classroom. When narrator 1 cheated on Lizzie’s exam paper, sirens came in which give the audience an indication that the cops were coming. Scene eight was set in a Cinema space. The music from the move ‘Titanic’ was playing in the background,
