Excellent performances make DOSTI concert a special one

Surabhi Kapoor, the principal of DOSTI added that the teachers and students had worked very hard to put together this show and after watching the performances it seems their has paid off.

The English play, “Guest is God” was a light hearted comedy about the preferential treatment given to visitors in Indian homes, especially V.V.I.P’s like the son-in-law, whose unintentional bumbling and goof-ups turn out to his benefit and earn him the respect of all his ‘sasuralees.’ Bhola and the trio of thieves were a laugh riot.

A musical dance-drama, ‘Sooraj ki saatvi beti’ portrayed special children dancing, singing and making merry as fairies visiting our land on a special trip and how the one little fairy left behind makes the best of her life, overcoming hurdles and a wily King’s plots to end on a happy note

Both English & Hindi plays were interspersed with songs, dances and instrumental performances (orchestra)  ensuring a fun-filled and lively variety entertainment program for the audience who joined in for the last performance “Ummedon wali aasha” waving hands and singing along to boost the spirits of the Dosti children.
