On Wednesday of Week 5, some of the crew of ATYP came to show Cyan and Lime a brand new play and ask us to help them re-write it! Well, not exactly. We actually read the script of a play, but get this, we were the first ever people to read it! The play is called Wonderfly, and it’s only on its second draft! Usually the Playwright (the person who makes the play) will have at least four drafts! Seven lucky girls and seven lucky boys got to play a character each in the play. I think a lot of people enjoyed it because of the colourful words in the script that only appeared about three times. Kids these days! After the reading, we then gave them Stars and Wishes on what worked well and didn't. The writer was furiously noting our reactions and making notes on how the play sounded. He will be busy working on the third draft by now.
The ATYP members who visited were Sophie Kelly - the director of this play, Nick Atkins - who wrote the play, Jenny - who holds ATYP together, Adele - who runs ATYP in schools, and the friendly giant, Rowan. Overall it was super fun, especially because we were the first people to find out the plot!
Thank you ATYP!
We look forward to working with you again. And, we look forward to watching the play in Term 4.
