Psychico College Drama Club Performs at Ancient Theater of Messene

On Thursday, April 11th, Psychico College Junior High – High School’s Drama Club had the great honor of presenting Aristophanes’ “The Clouds” at the Ancient Theater of Messene.

The Organizing Committee of the International Youth Festival of Ancient Drama Messene selected ten performances by secondary school and amateur university theater troupes with the aim of reviving ancient drama and providing essential – experiential contact with ancient drama and cultural heritage to young people.  Our Theater Club was among the troupes selected, presenting Aristophanes’ “The Clouds” with great success in the ancient theater. The location captivated the young actors in its own, enchanting way and carried them away as protagonists in this unique performance.

Our students had an opportunity to experience the magic of theatrical creation in an ancient theater, which because of its timelessness provides a singular source of inspiration and respect to both the actors and the audience.  Direction – scenography: Christos Galitis, Vasiliki Karkantzou.
