A Dazzling Performance of the Ramayana
Monday 2nd July 2012
The Yr 5 girls gave their hearts and souls to this wonderful story from the ancient Indian tradition. A story full of powerful characters requiring strong acting skills.
The two Ramas and Lakshmanas were heroic, the Ravana’s were passionate and evil, the Sitas both beautiful and displayed strong emotions, the Hanumans wise and adventurous by turns. The girls of both classes took on many parts, alternating between monkeys with ears and tails and demons with horrid masks. It was obvious that every girl met the challenge with confidence and strength, and many of those who are naturally more timid overcame their shyness to give stunning performances, far beyond their usual expectation!
At the beginning the girls had been reminded of a simple dictum; MEWC – Make Every Word count. This they did with wonderful clarity and drama. A superb event!
