Theater and us…Action!

Oompa Loompas during the theater
The Oompa Loompas dance.

During the week of the book, on initiative of the Prof. Mortali and Lanzarotti, a theater laboratory in english language was held. Some students of the Zappa Fermi institut,  which some of them were belonging to the 4th linguistic class, have staged two novels that became films: “Willy Wonka and the Factory of Chocolate” and “Alice in Wonderland”. For two days the music’s class was turned into a diy theater; the boys through make-up and stage objects, have organized a real show playing as true actors in a foreign language. Every student was related in a realistic way in their own part, using true objects as the chocolate of Augustus Gloop, the painter’s suites for the Oompas Loompa for “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”, the e-cigarette for Mr. Caterpillar and the costume for White Rabbit for “Alice in Wonderland”. The theater has also involved the public of the students of the institute making them have a good time and thanks to the simple dialogues, the spectators hadn’t difficulty to understand the plays. Besides some students were entrusted to make two videos for the school youtube channel. In conclusion it has been an amazing and educational experience.
