The evening opens with the Wesley College Choir, trained by Rachael Halliday and led by Taariq Jurangpathy, performing a selection of music from different ages.

Soon after will be a special performance of Wesley’s extract from ‘Julius Caesar’ which made it to the finals of the recent Inter-School Shakespeare Drama Competition 2016.

18 year old Taariq Jurangpathy’s superlative and very convincing portrayal of Brutus in this sequence, directed by Kevin Cruze and assisted by Wasaam Ismail and Mayanthi de Silva, won him the coveted award for the Best Actor. Wesley also shared the Award for Best Stagecraft with St. Peter’s College.

Tickets are available at the College Office during school hours.
