The Onatti faire du théâtre or was that Trete die Bretter? It depends on whether you were taking French or German.

But both our Year 8 and 9 linguists were treated to performances by the Onatti Theatre Company recently. For our French linguists, they enjoyed Le Café while our German linguists had the pleasure of watching Auf dem Campingplatz. 

Both performances were two-hour spectacles of farce and frivolity and our students impressed themselves with how well they understood the performances. It helped that they found each of the shows to be funnier than expected as well!

Thanks to the Onatti Theatre Cimpany for another great visit and a special thanks to our student volunteers (if you could call them that!) who added a hilarious extra dimension to proceedings.
