StGIS IB Theater Arts

Sonja Sobel, Michele Haindl, Luiza Madalozo and Max Weiser have bonded tremendously since their formation in August. This group is bursting at the seams with talent; demonstrated in their respective roles in various productions and monologues. They enjoy clapping, have their own “bat call” and have know of a blackhole in the Library in which Max gets sucked into.

Michele Haindl

In a few years if you don’t see her on the silver screen, look for her to represent you for your next legal matter. She is a busy woman and if she wasn’t interested in sleeping and eating she wouldn’t have time for them with all her other interests and activities. She has the gift of gab, a fondness for Kurt Geiger shoes and is one of our local speakers, hailing from Salzburg.

Yara Gomha

wants to be an artist in every sense of the word. “I want to change things, not reluctantly or sadly accept everything that’s thrown at me – be rationally radical, not compromise.” If she is not singing, directing, writing, acting, drawing or dancing you can find her discussing and debating ways to change a game or revamp the rules of almost everything.
