Some of our Mary Mackillop residents recently saw a production of Hamlet at the Casula Powerhouse Theatre. Our Leisure and Lifestyle team at Mary Mackillop chose this outing for the enjoyment of the residents, many of whom had a background or interest in theatre when they were younger. It was also an opportunity for a bit of reminiscing, with many of the residents having learnt about Hamlet in school- especially the famous soliloquy: ‘To be, or not to be!’
The production stirred a lot of conversation between the residents. All had a great day, with a few stating how lovely it was to have an outing like this where they could be transported into another world through the medium of theatre. The venue was very accommodating to the needs of all our residents. We would very much recommend the Casula Powerhouse Theatre to anyone who has an interest in live theatre!
Despite being in towards the city, the venue itself had very lovely surroundings. The residents also had an opportunity to spend time in the lovely garden area after the play.
