Teachers are overworked and underpaid, with a high burnout rate and a mandatory caffeine addiction. Marking, reports, parent-teacher interviews, Professional Development hours, performance standards and relief lessons in Year 9 PE... Why would anybody do it? For the love of learning? For the holidays? Or perhaps just for the comedy-cabaret fodder.
From the award-winning creative team behind 'Endo Days' (★★★★★ Glam Adelaide, ★★★★1/2 The Advertiser, Fringe Weekly Award: Best Cabaret), 'Extra Curricular' pops the cork on the teaching profession. A show by teachers, for teachers, or anyone who has ever sat in a classroom. Attendance will count towards compulsory PD hours*.
*may not actually count towards PD hours
