Toronto Catholic District School Board

Students Attend Theatre Performance

 

 
St Mary Catholic Academy were offered tickets to Soulpepper Theatre Company's performance of The Royale for the weekend of October 20-21, 2018.  The show was at The Young Theatre for Performing Arts. Students enjoyed the production which is told in a boxing ring over six rounds. The Royale is an electrifying adrenaline rush that shows us the deeply human cost of making history. From playwright Marco Ramirez (Orange is the New Black, Daredevil) comes a story inspired by World Heavyweight Champion Jack Johnson - who at the height of the Jim Crow era - became the most famous Black man on Earth.
 
This was a keen group and they were delighted to meet one of the performers after the show and asked great questions. They made some insightful comments around the themes in the show, the lighting and the unique staging.
