Rachel Gooley Year 9


Rachel Gooley represented ASC in three shows of the State Drama Festival at the Seymour Centre in Sydney. The Festival is a collection of group performances devised by students and put on by The Arts Unit. The performances include a mixture of school drama groups and audition entry ensembles. Rachel performed in the Stage 5 State Drama Camp Ensemble's performance 'One Day a Week' which the students used to express their experiences and frustrations with the teacher shortages. The idea for the piece came from one of Rachel's comments during the devising stages and finished with her addressing the audience on her own. The performance sparked conversations amongst audience members and apparently made the head of The Arts Unit teary.
