The Junior School had two full houses in fits of laughter at the Russian Cultural Centre on March 2nd and 3rd. From Bluebeard’s dancing entrance into the ‘damp, deep, dim, dark dungeon’ to the bulging muscles of his bodyguards and the puny King Bobeche repeatedly jumping into the arms of his queen for protection, there were jokes to entertain audience members of all ages. Congratulations to all the cast who showed stage presence and comic timing well beyond their years. Kaavya Gnanam was a brilliant Popolani and Rachel Hayward shone as Franz, while Noah Le Beurre held the show together in the wife-murdering title role.

Another star performer, Flossie the Sheep, was auctioned for charity after the show, raising Rs. 7,000. This has been given to an underprivileged family in Vavuniya to help the husband look after both his critically ill wife and their malnourished 4 month old child.
