I watched Third Year AB Theatre Arts play last Wednesday. Not just only it’s a William Shakespeare’s piece but because it’s also my way of supporting my dearest friend Charmaine.
The first half of the play represented by Group 1 was Hamlet. This drama is one of the great tragedy plays by Shakespeare. The themes of the plot cover indecision, revenge and retribution, deception, ambition, loyalty and fate. Prince Hamlet mourns both his father’s death and his mother, Queen Gertrude’s remarriage to Claudius. The ghost of Hamlet’s father appears to him and tells him that Claudius has poisoned him. Hamley swears revenge. He kills the eavesdropping Polonius, the court chamberlain. Polonius’ son Laertes returns to Denmark to avenge his father’s death. Polonius’ daughter Ophelia loves the prince but his behavior drives her to madness. Ophelia dies by drowning. A dueal takes place and ends with the death of Gertrude, Laertes, Claudius and Hamlet.
And seriously, I got bored. The play was good, the actors and actresses portrait their characters very well but the story was too long and wearisome. I’m a critic here. Sorry.
There have a 15 minute break. Kaye (freakhaye) hosted the ice breaker entitled “Yakisobra” and I was like “Oh my, that was really Kaye? She’s beyond awesome!”
By 3pm, the play resumed. The beginning of the play catches my attention, with the video about the same-sex relationships and the way they interpreted their dance (btw, it wasn’t a dirty dance that was an Art, a shadow dance as they called it.).
Charmaine play the lead role of Rosalind and Ganymede. As You Like It is one of the great comedy plays by Shakespeare. The heroine Rosalind played by Charmaine is one of his most inspiring characters and has more lines than any of Shakespeare’s female characters. Rosalind, the daughter of a banished duke falls in love with Orlando the disinherited son of one of the duke’s friends. When she is banished from the court by her usurping uncle, Duke Frederick, Rosalind takes on the appearance of a boy calling herself Ganymede. She travels with her cousin Celia and the jester Touchstone to the Forest of Arden, where her father and his friends live in exile. Themes about life and love, including aging, the natural word, and the death are included in the play. New friends are made and families are reunited. By the end of the play, Ganymede, once again Rosalind, marries Orlando. Orlando and Rosalind, Oliver and Celia, Silvius and Phebe and Touchstone and Audrey all are married in the final scene. Oliver becomes a gentler, kinder young man so the Duke changes his ways and turns to religion and so that the exiled Duke, father of Rosalind, can rule once again.
I got fascinated by their voices, it was loud and clear, (oh that was not because Charmaine is my friend) that was a part of my criticism. The enunciation and pronunciation was so perfect. Actually, all of the characters were good even on Hamlet’s casts, it was just their play was kinda’ dull and maybe because As You Like It, entertained everyone because of it’s humorous approach.
una, okay lang mag - react siya ng ganun na marumi ang lab kung nakatulong siya mapaayos ang lab. Eh sa pagkakatanda ko nung officer siya hindi naman siya nakatulong maglinis ng lab. Sila pa nga yung dumadagdag ng kalat. Grabe naalala ko lang dati pinamahayan ng daga at ipis yung ilalim ng bleachers ng wala man lang silang pakialam. At hindi ko maintindihan kung bakit kailangan pa makialam ng ibang tao na hindi naman ABTA. Wala siyang karapatan magsalita dahil hindi naman siya ABTA, hindi na dapat siya nakikisali sa issue na wala naman dapat siya. Oo andun na ko na kapatid niya yun. But I don’t think na dapat pa siyang magsalita. Galangan at respeto? WOW! Sino ba nag - umpisa? Sino ba nag - iimpluwensya sa mga bata na mawalan ng respeto di ba? Sila ‘tong nakakatanda pero sila rin naman nanguguna sa pagpapakita ng kawalan ng respeto.
pangalawa, kung OA ako mag - react ano pa sila? Dapat kasi nagtatanong di ba? Kung nagtanong sana sila edi alam nila na may general cleaning this week.
pangatlo, pinaka eppic sa lahat. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Kung kelan nagbabagong buhay ako ganyan sasabihin sakin. EPIC talaga! tawa na lang ako. In the first place hindi ako galit sa kanila. The hell I care di ba? Nakakainis lang kasi mga hindi nag - iisip. At ano ba ang ginagawa ng 3 - 1? HAHAHA Nagkataon ang 3 - 1 kasi nag - iisip sila HINDI! OO hindi na nga ako yung dating ako, kasi ngayon mas better ako! Kasi wala sila! HAHAHAHAHA Enough na nga. Parang joke kasi. HAHAHAHAHA
NAKAKATUWA TALAGA MGA CLASSMATES KO. ANG TATAAS NG IQ LEVEL.
