I watched this solely because my friends were performing in it haha. Directed by Laura Hayes, NAFA Diploma in Theatre English Drama Year 2 performed 9 scenes of selected plays by Shakespeare. It was also quite interesting to compare this to LASALLE’s Midsummer. This was on 13 April.
The students performed As You Like It, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Measure for Measure, Twelfth Night, Richard II.
Personally, I enjoyed Midsummer a lot. Performed in their blackbox, it had a more intimate vibe as compared to LASALLE’s version in the SIA theatre. Also, it was much more physical, where there was running, jumping and kicking. The other plays were more dry. Another scene worth mentioning was Richard II where Rino Junior John executed a solid performance (for a student) of the king himself in jail.
Other students whom I personally enjoyed watching was Megan Soh playing Isabella in Measure for Measure, Emilbiany Intong in Midsummer and Kevin Woo in As you like it.
