During the Autumn school break, a number of Greek Orthodox Community of NSW students had the opportunity to participate in a theatre workshop and perform the allegorical myth “The Little Prince” (1943) by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Greek actor and drama teacher in Athens, Haris Aronis, led the students through the workshop, a limited five rehearsals and finally the actual performance, and managed to instill to very young and older students the principle of discipline in theatre and a love for it. The initiative was taken by the Education Department of the Greek Orthodox Community of NSW and the Hellenic Art Theatre.
