The MAO Drama
Clubs Summer Show
The Full Cast!
The Drama Clubs
staged their Summer Show on 24th and 25th May
to audiences of primary and secondary students, staff, families and
The Senior Drama
Club (run by Teacher Glenice) performed a play written by one of the
drama members, Maha Nagib in 9W – a short comedy about a magic hat
that granted wishes.
It was a wonderful effort by the 4 Grade 9
girls who performed in the play, and by Rami Nagib in Grade 7 who
also appeared in it. The Senior Drama Club followed this by a
performance of a song called ‘There’s a hole in my bucket’, which
again featured Maha and Rami Nagib. Well done the Senior Drama Club
members for all their hard work and confident performances and an
especial well done to Maha, who I am sure will continue to delight
us with her writing talent.
Acting out "The Circle of Life"
The Junior Drama
Club (run by Teacher Yvonne) followed this with a selection of
choreographed mime scenes to a range of songs and one comedy mime
sketch. The Juniors comprised 8 boys from Grade 7 and one boy from
Grade 8 – with some special appearances by Shams Ahmed, Grade 4.
They had to learn to time their movements to fit in with the music
and mime a range of parts. They also took responsibility for all
scene changes on stage, which they did quickly and efficiently. The
group worked extremely hard in rehearsals and in the weeks leading
up to the show were rehearsing up to 3 times a week after school.
For anyone who is wondering – we have found a good home for the
The nerd with the mouse!
He wasn't so stupid after
Our thanks go,
not only to the students for their great performances, but to their
families for allowing them the time out of school hours to
rehearse. One of the performances was videoed for the school and
the performers will all receive a copy of this to show to their
King of The Road!"
Any students who
are interested in appearing in the next show will be welcome to join
the Drama Clubs when school starts again after the summer holiday.
Students from Years 6, 7 and 8 may join the Junior Club and students
from Grades 9-12 may join the Senior Club. If enough students are
willing to rehearse regularly, we will stage a Winter Show in late
Thanks to all for their
