Students of SSLSD bring a theatre production every alternative year for the local community to enjoy and this year they are ready with a contemporary version of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”- widely performed fairytale written by William Shakespeare. The cast of the theatre production titled “Midsummer Magic” will grace the stage of Sri Lanka on July 2015 and Qatar on September 2015. The cast, consisting of students from Year 5 to Year 13, will perform their version of the play infused with song and dance.
The production is a brilliant opportunity for everyone to escape from their hectic lifestyle for a few hours and to enjoy the fairies, goblins, witches and elves, who could cast spells, transform people into birds or animals and indulge in the extraordinary, bringing a little bit of magic to the human world.
SSLSD believes that it is a necessity to participate in academic and non-academic activities during school years for the growth of a totally balanced individual. Theatre allows students to practice lifelong skills that will help them in the future. The production initiates and encourages developing many values among the students and the staff of SSLSD. Commitment and responsibility is shown through the dedication of the students and members of the staff for the successful staging of this production. Furthermore, the theatre production is a brilliant way for students from different age groups to interact with one another, an initiative we try to encourage within the school.
