The world class improvisation began last Friday
when students took to the stage at 2pm and remarkably performed
until 2pm the following day.
For the full duration students played out
scenes relating to a rubbish dump topic, given to them only
seconds before they went on stage.
Year 12 student Olivia Godschalk said failing
had not been an option for the group who were determined to
make the full 24 hours. “The countdown to go on stage was
really scary. “The first 15 minutes we had been on it felt
like ages and it had only been 15 minutes and I thought it’s
going to be a long time,” she said.
Teachers, staff and students at St Catherine’s
College sponsored the senior drama class in their efforts.
Students that took part in the unofficial
world record included Alex Marzol, Andrew Johnston, Alicia
Manning, Mitchell Stewart, Dylan Boyd, Tahnee Nicholson, Daniel
Coffey, Olivia Godschalk, Wade Pease and former St Catherine’s
student Callum Howard and of course drama teacher Lisa Hall.
