Scots College students are excited to present ‘You’re History’

Students present ‘You’re History’ By Nikki Papatsoumas

Vikings, pirates and gladiators are just some of the characters audiences can expect to see in Scots College’s upcoming production. Students will present the production ‘You’re History’ this year, in conjunction with the school’s centenary celebrations, which will culminate in August. The production features a cast of 120 including students from Queen Margaret College and Wellington Girls’ College, alongside a live band. The production follows the story of a ‘techie’ teenager, who turns a ‘St Quots College’ classroom into a time machine. A mischievous detention class

is then sent hurtling back through history and along the way the students discover everything from gallant Ancient Greeks to vicious Vikings, rollicking pirates to disco-happy gladiators and a rapping Romeo and Juliet. Producer Claire Hall said with centenary celebrations in mind, a scene had also been added to reflect on the school’s history. She said the school’s tech department had been busy working on sets and parents were helping create more than 350 costumes. “What we are doing is really ambitious because every scene is completely different. Most kids have multiple roles.” Year 13 students Isaac Hooper and Jeremy Brow play lead char-

acters in the upcoming production. Both have been involved in school productions throughout their school career. They said they were excited to be involved in a production of this magnitude, performed during the school’s centenary year. “It’s our final year and we are very lucky to be part of both the centenary and this big production revolving around it,” Jeremy said. “It’s going to be bright, beautiful with lots of awesome sets, pieces and costumes. There is heaps of energy on stage,” he said.  ‘You’re History’ runs from June 28 to July 2. To purchase tickets, head to scotscollege.
