“We are all special, unique and talented. We all have something important to share with the world.” This was an important theme in Freckleface Strawberry: The Musical, a fantastic children's musical that was staged this past April in the black box theatre at Gubei Campus.
Directed by Drama Teacher, Mr Robert Dil, a cast of six Year 11and one Year 10 IGCSE Drama Students brought the many wonderful songs, scenes, and energy of this show to life. The two daytime performances not only delighted families from the community, but the show also raised money for CereCare, a Shanghai organisation that supports young people living with Cerebral Palsy. In total RMB 5005 yuan was raised through the performances. Mr Dil says, “It was a lot of creative fun to put together this production with a talented cast of young actors and our very supportive Performing Arts Department. It also made the production extra special that we were able to support CereCare.”
Reflecting upon their performances, the students shared their experiences from the production.
