Garden International School (GIS) has gone MAD.
The school’s Music, Art and Drama (MAD) made a return recently and proved massively popular with a sell-out audience attending.
On March 27, stunning artwork was displayed, while the new-look hall then staged performances from the school’s young collection of musicians and actors.
Before the show began, parents, teachers and students mingled in one half of the hall, which displayed IB art work from D’Lisa and IGCSE Design and Technology creations. Teachers were also on hand to serve wine and soft drinks. Guests were then shown to their tables, where some specially-created snacks had been laid on.
The choir perform ‘Happy’.
The evening’s performances started with some tribal drumming from Teng, Sony, Pune, Akihiro and Gorn, followed by the choir singing ‘Happy’. The Year 10 girls took to the stage to perform ‘Royals’ and then the IGCSE boys sang ‘Sunshine of Your Life’ before Praw staged a superb monologue from ‘Gossip’.
Design and Technology work was displayed at the MAD show.
The first half also featured Year 9 music and drama, a duologue from Mary and Shaniya based on ‘Two Sisters in a Frosty Situation’, while Hyojung played ‘Waterfall’ on the piano. Matt impressed with a monologue from ‘The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, the IB1 band played ‘Funk My Life’ and Maria ended the first half with a monologue based on ‘Chocolate Heaven’.
After a short break, during which some rock bands played, the orchestra played ‘Entry of the Gladiators’, which was followed by GeeGee’s monologue from ‘The Witches’. The flute group played Dixieland, after which Gear and Henry staged a hilarious duologue from ‘Macbeth on the Loose’. After the Year 9 girls sang ‘Bonfire Heart’ and Matt and Nutt did a duologue from ‘Blood Brothers’, Gear returned to the stage to end the evening with Puck’s famous soliloquy from ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.
