Teatru Kulleġġ is a student-led Junior College theatre group. It brings together students who all share curiosity and passion for Theatre and Performance. With the help of Mr Karl Cassar, the co-ordinator, students get to experience what it would be like to be part of a theatre company that creates performances, all while learning and growing in a safe space.
The two main annual events produced by Teatru Kulleġġ are the Christmas Concert and the Junior College Soirée. Every year auditions are held for students to take part in these performances. For the annual Soirée, students are chosen to take various roles such as script writer/s, stage manager/s, stage designer/s, choreographer/s and vocal coach/es, amongst others. They all work together, alongside the committee to create and present a performance in the month of February.
The goal of our theatre group is to create a space in which anyone is welcome to come and experience all aspects of theatre, on stage and/or behind the scenes. To the naked eye, theatre might seem just a source of entertainment but when looking deeper, students realise there is so much more to this art form. It is a medium whereby students can express themselves and during the process they explore ways of how to transform thoughts, feelings and concepts into performance. Teatru Kulleġġ encourages students to be free and share their talents whilst also reinforcing artistic skill and put it to practice.
The Christmas Concert 2022 was held on 16 December at Peter Serracino Inglott Auditorium. Students were given the opportunity to share with the enthusiastic audience present their artistic talents. The programme boasted of a variety of performative acts, which had students singing, playing instruments, dancing and acting in the hope of sharing the Christmas Spirit with everyone present. The festive performance was welcomed by the audience whose claps and cheers filled our auditorium - a memory to be cherished in the years to come!
The Junior College Soirée 2023 performance Ghostwritten will be held on 17 and 18 February 2023. It unfolds the story of Sofiia Cauchi, an average teenage girl regarded as a social reject, upon being gifted a diary for her 16th birthday; an outlet by which all her impossible fantasies could become a reality on paper. When writing, she gives herself an alias, Charlotte; the epitome of popularity. Consequently, Sofija slowly comes to learn that her actions have consequences when her writing comes to life. As Sofija's life is thrown for a loop, with the people she loves the most on the line, how far will she go to blend the lines between reality and fiction?
Organised by the young passion and dedication of Teatru Kulleġġ, the story was written by student Sage Agius and Robyn Mifsud, with Clara Abdilla Joslin as artistic director. The energetic performance promises a great spectacle in our college’s auditorium in turn making it yet another great memory for the audience present during this performance, the creatives and the performers alike.
