May is the month of flowers and for giving thanks. Everything seems so fascinating. On May 20, all the students of LSS Grade 7, with their enthusiasm, brought us an amazing and fabulous English drama “High School Musical”, which shows them how to look for their inner self and realize their dreams. The play enables every student to step onto the stage and contribute to the performance. Stage performances, scenes supervision, stage lighting and sound technical support, as well as teachers’ and parents’ volunteering, all working together, contributes to the most fabulous drama of the year!
In the drama, the students “stepping into roles” create different figures, show various kinds of characters and become another self. For example: teachers, coaches, parents and students with characteristics. Through observation, discussion and performance in the early stage, the rehearsal and polishing in the middle stage, and the addition of costumes and props in the later stage, the students strive to surpass themselves, so that they can get something from this “big play”.
In this drama performance, I acted as the assistant director and lighting and sound division. I think this is a good opportunity to exercise and learn. Although I was in the “black room” behind the scenes during rehearsals and performances, I am very proud to be able to get such a special role to help students throughout the grade.
When I started learning drama, I found it was not my favorite subject owing to that I think I cannot act out as Gabriella. However, after the instruction of my teachers, the encouragement of my friends and the assistance of my family, I finally made it. I’ve found a new “me” after drama class. I hope that there will be more opportunities to stand on the stage in the future, and I will perform better!

In this drama performance, I played the role of Sharpay—- an arrogant and annoying “drama queen”. When I first started acting, I was so shy and nervous that I couldn’t act naturally. So Mr. Lin help me to find the feeling, and even performed for me as an example. With his help, I made a qualitative leap in my performance and received compliments from my teachers and classmates. This is not just a performance for me, but also another shining point in my life.
It’s the third year since G7 started the integrated drama course. Every year is full of surprises. The student stars shine on the stage and the parents applaud. It’s not only the praise and encouragement for each student, but also the affirmation for the professional teachers. Let’s look forward to the performance brought by the “actors” next year!
