The MIRACLE PLAYERS perform for

the Tangara School for Girls
NSW - Australia

October 3, 2002

    
October was a very special month for the girls and faculty of the Tangara School of New South Wales, Australia. Anne-Marie, their teacher and coordinator, had arranged for them to come to Rome to participate in the canonisation ceremony of Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer that was held on October 6 2002. Anne-Marie was particularly excited  about the event because she had had the pleasure of personally meeting the founder of Opus Dei.

However, the "Tangaras" were the only ones out of the 300,000 visitors that had planned a special trip down to the Roman Forum.  Anne-Marie not only prepared the girls with information about Rome's history and culture but also thought that it would be fun and educational to solidify some concepts of Roman history with the Miracle Players' own version of "The History of Rome".

Notwithstanding a most "wet" year in Europe, the group ventured down to the Roman Forum on October 3, sat on the church steps of  SS. Luca and Martina and were blessed with pleasant weather and a spectacular view of the ancient Roman city.

Some moments of "The History of Rome" as performed that day are:

Romulus and Remus fighting over founding a new city. The Carthaginians trying to conquer Rome. The defeat of the Celtic Gauls by the Romans.

The Miracle Players warmly thank Anne-Marie and the faculty and students of the Tangara School for giving us the pleasure of performing "The History of Rome" in the heart of the aeterna urbe.
