Drama Festival


​Friday 15 April saw Home Hill State High School tread the boards once again in the annual Interschool Drama Festival. Our entry this year was a melodramatic tale of dastardly deeds, complete with villains, tycoons, heroes and innocent, pretty young things. The students gave a stellar performance with Patrick Ryan deservedly taking out the award for best actor for his flawless portrayal of the evil Rusty Cattler. Tamokai Kupenga received the best supporting actor award for his role as Dusty Rhodes where he proved he does indeed have the ‘Moves Like Jagger.’ Jenna Attard was given the prestigious Director’s Award, recognising her commitment to her role and the production. Participation in the Drama Festival is a fabulous opportunity for students to gain showcase their natural talents in acting and dancing but also their creativity in set and costume design and use their technological skills with lighting and sound.
