Theater productions have been a part of Tabeetha’s life for ages. It is a wonderful opportunity for our students to experience the world of fine arts and to discover their creativity. This is Mr John’s third year of directing the School Play along with Ms Gitman.
In February Tabeetha School staged Arthur Miller’s tragedy “All My Sons” at the Jaffa Theatre. This play is the first choice of many English teachers in Israel when teaching the drama unit of the Bagrut’s Literature Module. Set in post-World War II America, this classic play is about a family that has been affected by both of their sons going off to fight in the war and only one returning home. The whole family has been changed by the war, as have their relationships with each other and their friends. Will they ever be able to recover?
This year’s production was the biggest and most ambitious yet – by far the most challenging script, the first to include sound design, three evening performances and a student matinee as well. It was a great success! Congratulations and thanks to the students who worked so hard on this production; behind the scenes, on sound, lighting, props, costume, and stage management. The cast produced some stunning performances, and learned a lot about each other and themselves along the way. Some great friendships were forged during the long hours of rehearsal!
Working together, we produced something that was bigger than ourselves that we could give to the community. I hope you learned that as a group and as individuals you have the power to capture people’s attention, to move and inspire others.
It has been wonderful working with you all and I am incredibly proud of our achievement!
A huge THANK YOU to our donors for your generous support. We couldn’t have done it without you!
