So here is my hurried collection of a few snapshots from the event at the Sydney Opera House last night:
Here is one of our intrepid first years: Timb Hoswell
Here are some second years: Leonie, Ana Lorena, Karen (with friend) Olivia, Daniel, Teresa and Michael Yuen
Here are some third years: Jordan, Jen, Janine, Jessica and Danielle
And here are some of the Vincentian Village crowd: Michael, Anna Pfundstein (ACU International Visiting student from Germany), George (now advancing to graduate work at ACU- congratulations George!), Rosemary in the front, Luke behind (ACU Researcher) John (Johannes), Ian and Judy Brophy (the all-important co-ordinator of Vincentian teaching: thank you Judy!)
(the Vincentian students incidentally managed to get FREE tickets to the performance- so thank you so much Bell Shakespeare for supporting the cultural advancement of the marginalized and oppressed in our community (very much in harmony with Shakespeare's own mission and purpose!).
And here are some more: Karen Lamb (new English Lecturer at ACU) with Anissa and Rosemary.
Thank you all (and others not photographically recorded) who came and made such an enthusiastic party of Shakesperian afficionados..... and - oh yes- my daughter Hannah- also very excited and enthusiastic about this production which reminded us both of the time I took her to The Tempest when she was 4 years old, when she stood in the front row calling out loudly at a moment when Caliban was holding the stage: Where is Miranda Daddy!!!!!!!
