Standard 7A had a colourful and well-staged presentation of "Roxanne" (based on a screenplay by Steve Martin)

Next Standard 7a presented "All that Jazz," based on "Chicago," screenplay by Maurine Dallas Watkins.  The sets and the costumes were amazing!

Thursday night saw two presentations by Standard 9 students:

"Us and Them," was performed by Standard 9a, screenplay by David Compton

"The Miller's Daughter," presented by Standard 9A, screenplay by Gadfan Morris

Friday night it was Standard 11's turn!

Standard 11a presented "The Moonstone," one of the first ever mystery stories ever written in English Literature.   The book is authored by Wilkie Collins, adapted for stage by Alistair Faulkner.

Then it was Standard 11A's turn to present an amazing, and very funny adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, set in modern day Mumbai, and written by Robert Reed.

"Romeo and Julie" brought the house down with an awesome script, great costumes and brilliant choreography.

Saturday night Standard 13 presented a self-produced musical extravaganza - "Wicked," a prequel to "The Wizard of Oz."  It was an extremely ambitious undertaking with several costume changes, live orchestration, and incredible production/direction.  Well done Standard 13! 

This week the classes will perform a second time for their parents who have arrived at Hebron from all corners of India and SE Asia.
