A Midsummer Night’s Dream 2019
A Midsummer Night’s Dream: A Magical, New Dimension!
Full of suspense, magic and excitement—this is what this year’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream play production aims to convey to its audience. The Grade 6 Family has been preparing for this much-awaited event, making sure that things will end up well. All the actors and directors have put their blood, sweat and tears in the play, and that is why we are encouraging all to come and join us in our presentation. So allow us to persuade you to come to our marvelous performance and see our take on William Shakespeare’s iconic AMND.
First and foremost, this year’s production is unique. After several decades, the directors have decided to put a twist to tradition. William Shakespeare has been cast to explain what is happening in between the scenes. More songs have been added to transform this play into a musical. Many different scenes were tweaked just a little bit, but that Shakespearean essence that gives off a thrilling ambiance still remains and lingers.
The fairies and elves present a magical, fairytale-like experience while the lovers display a romantic scene on a new relatable level. The mechanicals, otherwise known as the laborers, give off the endless strings of laughter and giggles to the audience because of the peculiar actions and questionable dialog which never fail to lighten up the dramatic atmosphere.
Last but certainly not the least, is the hard work that we have given in this production to ensure that we present the best version of A Midsummer Night’s Dream that we can possibly show our audience. All the actors memorized their lines and movements religiously. All the directors guided the students with the blocking, characterization and the overall run-through. The parents also volunteered to help in the different committees to support the production work. Every single member of the Grade 6 Family did her or his very best to produce an excellent play that will hopefully be remembered throughout the history of SSC for skillful acting and breath-taking emotions.
Thank you in advance for those who wish to support us. Ordering the exclusive AMND t-shirt helps a lot, as well as buying the souvenir program. We are grateful because doing this gives pride to SSC. However, the best support you can give is by simply watching our performance. It truly means a lot to us. Catch us on March 4 – 5, 2019 in Sr. Ehrentrudis Hall for a special, magical, and thrilling adventure of A Midsummer Night’s Dream presented by, yours truly, The Grade 6 Family.

Midsummer Night’s Dream 2019
From magical fairies to sorrowful lovers, the duke and duchess, to laborers who rehearse in an enchanted forest, William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” has it all. The Grade 6 family is inviting everyone to her or his own take of the magical play to be presented on March 4 and 5, 2019 at Sr. Ehrentrudis Hall. A lot of things going on behind the magic, like committee work and acting workshops for all the students. This activity aims to provide entertainment for the audience and instill the value of community in the students and teachers.
The students have gone through extensive training both in the classroom and in the theater in order to make the magic come alive. First, auditions were held to determine each student’s role in the play. (Yes, the fairies are actual students, but please keep that a secret!)Then came the production work, –the stuff that goes on behind the scenes- from the house music to set the mood, to the props, set design, souvenir program, multimedia effects, costume, and even this article, were all done by the Grade 6 students, with the guidance and help of our teachers, of course.
We had three weeks to focus on the characterization, delivery of lines, blocking on stage and the production work. Within this period, I can say that we have become more independent, responsible and disciplined individuals. We have learned to appreciate each one’s talents as we worked together to interpret this very interesting literary work.
Once again, come and join us to witness the fruits of our labor which we painstakingly prepared for all of you. We have a show at 9:30 in the morning and another one at 1:00 P.M. Our gala will be on March 5 at 4:30 P.M. Tickets are at P150.00 each for students and P200.00 for the adults.
