MI 28.11.2007On November 28th the students of our third class saw the
performance of Virtual Heros. The actors came from the Viennas English Theatre. Our students enjoyed the brilliant play very much. It was really fantastic.
and welcome to Cyber World!
How about you? Are you a computer-freak? Are you PS2 (or Xbox, Gamecube) crazy?
Have you ever played until you fell asleep over your keyboard?
How important is your PC, your playstation and your mobile for you? Lets have a look!
On the scale from 1-100 below, you would be where? Take a pen and put a cross!
0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100
Now ask your parents/your brothers and sisters/a friend? What do they think? Do they agree?
Just think if you had no computer/playstation, would you 1) do more homework
instead? More sports? 2) Read lots of books? 3) See interesting films? Or 4) perhaps go
to the theatre and watch a play? In English? (Good choice!)
Well, thats what youre about to do, and let me tell you, get ready for a special treat!This years VET touring production, Virtual Heroes, is partly set in a virtual game
world. As you follow the two main characters, Rita and Kevin or rather Sapphire and
Byron, through their adventures in Egypt and Peru, youll think youre sitting at your
PC/playstation. Rita is a good pupil, Kevin is not. Rita doesnt have friends and is being
bullied, Kevin misses his dad. Both are looking for adventure, creating a virtual reality
for themselves, taking on the personalities they would like to be in their dreams.
Email and chatrooms are the main ways of communication but because everybody
uses a nickname, you never know who you are really talking (= writing) to. Just
imagine pouring your heart out to your cyber pal, and it turns out to be your neighbour!
Or worse, your younger brother! And remember, the good-looking millionaire or the
beautiful model you fell in love with in a game/chatroom might turn out to be a frog
who wants to be kissed but is not going to turn into a prince/princess!
So, we hope youre going to enjoy the play and have lots of fun after all, thats the
idea of going to the theatre: have fun and enjoy a play in English!
Well, Id better log off now and let you join Rita and Kevin in their virtual adventure!
