IPGK Gaya’s PPISMP TESL July 2010 students had organised the 2011 Readers’ Theatre last Friday and it was incredible! They totally rocked it out last Friday. For me, it was really great to experience all of their awesome, funny, and sad stories, amazing and funky dance performances and breathtaking singings. They have lots of talents, ain’t it?
[What’s a reader’s theatre anyway? It is a style of theatre in which the actors sit or stand on the stage, and read the lines directly from the scripts. The scripts are not memorised. Instead of using elaborate props or visual aesthetics, the actors use their own vocal expressions and body movements to help the audience understand the story.]
The [completely unorthodox] compilation of the stories:
The bread [a gift from God] was eaten by a vegan dinosaur that then went to the bank to deposit $65 but was astonished to see new creatures called butterflies. He was trying to catch them, but he accidentally met a one-arm aborigine [who never enrolled himself in a school]who was trying to eat him while saying ‘Sam I am, I don’t eat green eggs and ham’, while listening to Martin Luther King, Jr’s I Have a Dream in order to fulfil his dream of world peace.
Here’re some photos from the night. Hope you’ll enjoy it!
Thanks guys for organising an awesome night!
