Barrel of Laughs (Returns!)
The cast of ‘Barrel of Laughs (Returns!)’ was ecstatic to present to our audience another fun-filled play. This year, the play used themes of money, bureaucracy, and family, to create witty and intellectual humour, for the audience’s entertainment. The story about a bank robbery gone wrong did not disappoint, bringing laughter and joy to the audience.
When the cast consisting of ACJC alumni (and some current students) started working on this play, it was tough and rigorous. However, with the guidance of our talented Director, Mrs Geetha Creffield, and the mentorship of the alumni, we managed to bring the play to life with great success.
The whole journey was not just enjoyable, but also enriching. The junior batches experienced the rigour of craft-making, while senior batches further explored the concept of mentorship. As a cast, everyone had the opportunity to learn more about creating and giving performances beyond the classroom, as well as boosting interpersonal skills. With strong camaraderie and commitment to their work, they were able to produce a thrilling and hilarious play for the audience.
The show would not have been possible if not for our teachers, Mrs Geetha Creffield, Ms Michelle Wong, Mr Tobias Teo, Mdm Baljeet Kaur, and Ms Low Tze Hui, as well as our beloved alumni who return every year to help out as the cast or crew. Their enthusiasm and participation towards the play were invaluable to the success of the show. We would also like to thank our audience for their support. Last but not least, we would like to credit our success to God, whose name we continue to work in and glorify.
If you would like to see more of ACSian Theatre, do ask any of our members for tickets to our next show: Shakespeare!, which tells the story of William Shakespeare trying to write his next big play ‘Romeo & Juliet’, taking inspiration from his own experiences with hardship, competition, and above all, romance. We hope to see you there!
To God be the Glory, the Best is yet to Be!
