ASTORIA – The hilarious comedy, The Yellow Gloves by Alekos Sakellarios and Christos Giannakopoulos was performed by the students of the newly established Saint Demerios High School Drama Club at the Petros Patrides Cultural Center in Astoria on June 1 and 2.
The students were directed by their teachers Apostolos Mavrommatis and Stavroula Tsoutsa. The students impressed the audience with their exceptional performances in their particularly demanding roles.
Giannos Melissourgos as the jealous Orestes provoked plenty of laughter, while Angeliki Tzanou was convincing as the long-suffering Rena. Krystallia Pasvati presented the mincing Toula and Andreas Mouhas was delightful as the “manga” Leandros. Artemis Orkoula as Elli convinced us of her abundance of talent and Anna Sarantis was a sweet and odd Vaso. Ioanna Pasvati as Annoula and Savas Tserkezidis as Takis played their roles impeccably.
Andreas Konstantinou revealed his acting talent as Brillis and inspired unrestrained laughter in the audience. Evangelia Tsaggaris as Mrs. Theodora was impeccable and Christos Klitsinikos was a funny Zervos.
The director was Antora Mitsaki, who worked hard so that the show would go on without any mistakes or problems. Behind the scenes, Dennis Hatzitasis and Zoe Bibassi helped out as well. Christos Gkerdouki was the stage manager. The result was unique. The audience broke into thunderous applause for the young actors and spoke enthusiastically about the professionalism of the show.
After this successful effort of the newly established St. Demetrios Drama Club there are great expectations for the future and upcoming performances.
