The Oratory Ensemble, is the name of a production company that aims to give Dominic College students experience as performers, stage managers, theatre designers, lighting and sound operators as well learn to ushering and run front of house.
In an ensemble, there are no, ‘stars’. Everyone is of equal, no matter if you are playing the main role or being a ‘spear carrier’.Everyone’s contribution is equally important and equally valued.
The Oratory Ensemble will present two productions in semester one; one at the end of Term 1 and another at the end of Term 2. Casting is complete for the first outing, a production of Neil Simon’s The Odd Couple- The Female Version.
The story of the original odd couple, Oscar and Felix, has been rewritten and now Olive and Florence are the incompatible room-mates, forced to share an apartment and learn about the strains that domesticity can extract on even the strongest friendship.
Stay tuned for performance details.
