Last Friday Class 6 performed the play ‘Aladdin’ in front of fellow students, teachers and school administration staff. They had rehearsed for many weeks, and finally all those rehearsals and preparations culminated in a wonderful show, that told the tale of Aladdin, a poor street boy, who meets a young girl in the market place who happens to be Princess Jasmine, the daughter of the Sultan of Hasbah. She is sad because she is being forced to marry her father's choice of suitor. Aladdin's luck suddenly changes when he retrieves a magical lamp from the Cave of Wonders. What he unwittingly gets is a fun-loving genie who only wishes to have his freedom. Little do they know that the sinister magician Omar has his own plans for both Aladdin and the lamp.
Brightly coloured costumes, hand-crafted and impressive props and enlivening singing, dance and music, came together, with wonderful performances by the talented cast. The students learned a great deal about performance, drama and theatre, and had a great deal of fun along the way.
We missed the fact our parents could not be in the audience due to COVID-19 restrictions and hope these images go some way to illustrating the wonderful event. Well done to all and thank you to the volunteers, parents and others who contributed to the play’s great success.
