The Frank Anthony Public School, presents a Major Drama Production paying respect to Robert Wise. The students revisit Austria, where the seven children of the naval officer, learns the musical notes and gets recognised as The von Trapp Family Singers. Yes, FAPS presents ‘The Sound of Music’ as an special event of the 50th Golden Jubilee Year.
One fine morning, our Principal announced that it was time for third special event for the Golden Jubilee Year after The Inaugural Ceremony and The Gilded Rhymes. It was time for showcasing some acting skills and thus a drama and to direct it we had one of our ex-student, Mr. Naireet Basak. Many students had visited the first audition but few kept the momentum and went for dialy practices, for the whole of summer vacation and after school hours. Among the teachers, Mr. M. deDonker and Mr. S. Dias assisted for the edit, directing and acting, while Mrs. S. Chater kept the harmony intact which is one of the most important part for a musical drama like The Sound of Musiic with Mr. D. Biswas on the synthesizer and Mr. P. Chaudhury on the guitars.
The students selected, fits best according to their respective role and their efforts are really paying off. This event is one of the biggest and will leave a mark in FAPS history. Teachers and students, both kept working effortlessly for making this event a success, from the acting to directing, from the music to the advertising. The drama will be screened on 6th and 7th August, 2014 at Kala Mandir.
A few behind the scenes are added below and will update with the actual event. Stay Tuned.
