F.1 Readers Theatre Competition - A Marvelous Occasion to Enjoy ‹ BACK
The sweet memory of the F.1 Interclass Reader’s Theatre Competition which was held on 23rd March, 2018 remains vivid in my mind. It was one of the most unforgettable moments in my life. Not only was I in the performance to represent my class, but I was thrilled also because it was a brand new experience for me to be the MC of the event together with Matthew Lam in 1R. With the encouragement of my English teacher and family, I was glad that I finally rose to the challenge.
Before the competition was held, we were taught the techniques of script writing and voice projection by our NET Ms Sparrow. We were also introduced to the new genre of Readers Theatre, which was a wonderful occasion for us to exercise our creativity in a live performance.
The purpose of the competition was to showcase the fruits of success of each winning team of the class. First we watched a short video to recap the highlights of our preparation for the day, not to mention the competition in the class. Then each of the winning team of the Best Performance Award performed on stage. Finally, we were honored to have invited Mr. Robert Archibald, an expert on drama, to give us valuable comments about our performances. We all learned a lot from his inspiring speech!
Finally, the most exciting moment came. 1R stole the limelight of the show by winning both the Best Overall Performance Award and the Best Actor and Best Actress Award whereas 1B grabbed the prize of Best Script. Though only 2 classes got prizes, we all were winners for we won friendship and mutual trust. No man is an island. A friend in need is a friend indeed. Sportsmanship is as important as championship.
I sincerely thank all English teachers for organizing such a meaningful activity. It has been a great time for us to watch and to listen, to tell and to show. What is more, it is fun for us to share and to enjoy. I look forward to similar fun-filled English activities. Special thanks for Ms Wong who encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone to take up the challenge!
