A Bunny Tale Worth Telling

The Blue Rabbit was performed by the Senior Drama Ensemble over several days to parents, grandparents and friends and audiences as young as 4 (from our Early Childhood Education Centre). The young actors skilfully adapted their performances for the range of ages in the different audiences.

Head of Drama at Hills Grammar, Stephen Clark, penned the play with a strong message about social inclusion. 

The message was clear and the empathy commanded by the players, palpable. The Blue Rabbit, performed in the School’s Blue Box Theatre, sees a young blue rabbit from ‘over the hill’ bounce into the well-established red rabbits’ domain. The young rabbits have never seen a rabbit like this and have no idea how to react. Is it really a rabbit? Can we trust it? Maybe we are too different to get along. You can guess how the conflict is resolved… and yes, there is even a little rabbit love-story. However, it is what the very young and perceptive audiences took away that was most important.
