Stagecraft, an inter school drama competition 2018

Stagecraft, an inter-school drama competition held by Study Hall Educational Foundation (SHEF) once in every two years is an excellent platform for schools all over Lucknow to show their exceptional drama skills. This year, in the third edition of Stage Craft, The Millennium School, Lucknow Public School, and Shri Ram Swaroop Memorial College participated along with Study Hall’s own budding actors.
The show started with a speech delivered by the head boy, Shreyas Thakur.
The teams had to vase their plays on issues which hinder our society today. TMS, LPC, and SRM performed plays called ‘Earth in 2069′, ‘CopyLeft’ and ‘Devi’ respectively. These plays targeted the issues of increase in the use of plastic, distractions caused by social media, the increase in poverty and the sorry state of women in today’s society.
Study Hall presented the play ‘Parched’ or ‘Pyasa’ by Anushree Roy. It is set in Kolkata in present-day India. It presents us with a brief glimpse into the home of Mr. Bikash, a bhodralok brahmin and in the life of Meera, his maidservant. It is a slice of reality that is often hidden behind a veil of glitz and glamour of Metropolitan cities.

The teams were judged not only on their performance but also on their costumes and their stage set up. While the awards for best play and best stage set up were bagged by Study Hall whereas the award for best costume was bagged by The Millennium School. Arundhati Singh, head girl of Study Hall school won the overall best actor award along with the award for best actor in ‘Parched’. To make the show even more memorable, Prerna concluded it with a beautiful self-composed skit.

Chrysalis- It’s the stage in the life of a butterfly in which the larva builds cocoon around itself and prepares itself to face the world. In this stage only that the wings appear. Clearly, the title justifies the journey of each student of study hall who participated in the fest. The fest helped students discover their latent talents and potential. It was an amazing journey for each one at Study Hall, be it a teacher, student or the supporting staff. The house captains and the student council did their best to make this fest a successful one.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said: The journey is always more beautiful than the destination. The experiences that one collects on the course of his/her journey is what he/she treasures lifelong. The fest taught students team spirit, time management and most importantly how to think out of the box. Every soul in Study Hall Foundation gave their hundred percent. The successful three-day long gala was the result of the determination, burning zeal, and passion of each individual.

There were over 25 events out of which some are mentioned below:

Western Music-This singing competition was held for classes 9th-12th and they all sang award-winning songs. It happened in the Junior AC hall. The melodious voices held the audience in a spectacular trance as though casting spells with their voices

Every good thing has to end. The Chrysalis 2018 ended on a harmonious note. Western Music competition was the last competition on the list. After that Dr. Urvashi Sahni, founder of Study Hall Educational Foundation addressed the student body. The results were declared and it brought tears of both joy and happiness.It was a victory moment for some and a melancholy note for others. It was a memorable time for Prerna Girls School and Vidyasthali School who secured positions in many intra-foundation events. The glittering golden trophy chose yellow to be it’s favourite. And, even though the winner among the houses, Cypress, cheered for each other and stood tall, they also showed great respect for their fellow teams. The others following in their footsteps celebrated their victory as well.

The school is not only hoisting a flag and banner for change but marches forward or rather flies ahead with the wings that each one of us chose instead of crawling through life, thus, following the words of Rumi, “Why prefer to crawl through life when you are born to fly?”
