‘Julius Ceaser’ presented at RAC


In connection with the International Theatre Day, a Drama Night was celebrated in which the Headway Escuela School students presented different plays at the Rawalpindi Arts Council (RAC). National Assembly Member Tahira Aurangzeb, the guest of honour, was accompanied by Naheed Manzoor, RAC Resident Director Waqar Ahmed and the principal of the school. The show opened with ‘Golden Goose’ a collection of folk tales, followed by ‘Beauty is Beast’, a slightly different and more humorous version of the fairy tale. The colourful costumes added to the ambiance of the show. First and second graders also gave an energetic performance on a medley. A scene from ‘Julius Ceaser’, a classical tragedy by William Shakespeare was presented with a modern twist. The play is about human emotions, ranging from love, friendship, the extremes of jealousy, hatred and finally murder. The play ‘Chacha Chakkan Banaras Chalay’ based on a popular comic character from Urdu Literature, enthralled the audiences. Speaking on the occasion, Tahira Aurangzeb said Headway Escuela trained its students to become confident and creative members of the society. She applauded the efforts of the staff and the children in putting up the event.
