ACSian Theatre presents "A Christmas Carol"

On the 18th of May 2016, award-winning ACSian Theatre staged A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens for ACS (Barker) at the Anglo-Chinese Junior College’s Faith Centre of the Performing Arts. The ensemble, anchored by our very own ACSian Theatre alumni along with the new J1s, put up a magnificent performance of the classic novel.

"Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?"

The combination of song, text and dance filled the stage with colours and created an impressive performance. The audience members, made up of Secondary One and Two Literature students, were treated to an auditory and visual spectacle.

A Christmas Carol is about the unpleasant miser Ebenezer Scrooge and his journey to find kindness, charity and the joy of Christmas. He meets three ghosts who explore his past, present and future. By the end of the play, he discovers the true gift of giving and sharing and develops into an empathetic individual. The play employs creative language and dazzling motifs to teach children important moral values. It was truly rewarding for the cast to have been part of such a meaningful play.

As the first full-length production by the ACSian Theatre batch of 2017, the J1s were intrigued by the entire production process. The camaraderie developed by the end of the production made this experience such an important journey for all concerned. We look forward to seeing what else the JC  1s can bring to the stage!

The J1s will be putting up a series of performances as part of the biennial Night of Laughter on the 4th and 5th of August at the ACJC Black Box. Come along to see what they have in store!
