Us 7B performed a folk tail in 1st grades (1S and 1Y) and 3rd grade (3W). Our group took so long to decide our story but we enjoyed it so far
I performed with my costumes (even though its a ordinary clothes, I don’t wear them that much) and some props, which was sweets for the scene where Hanzel and Gretel found the house made out of sweets scene.
The best performance was the first one with 1S students, because they seemed to enjoy and got entertained by us acting the skit. Afterwards, I made mistakes or I didn’t have much energies, so I think I didn’t have expressions for second and third performances. Except, my volume never changed unfortunately… So next time I could improve my pitch.
The difficulties during the skit was that to arrange and make up, or speak more for the each scene. I was speechless except for the middle part which I had a line and last part where I push the witch to the oven. Therefore, if I could perform again, I would speak a lot, raise my volume more and be as my character, Gretel.
An achievement I found out was that I have gave so much progresses than practising time. When I was practising, there was so much confusion and the acting seemed a little basic and boring. I actually liked how the narrator spoke, and I am so far satisfied with what I have done, and our group has accomplished the skit successfully, which is great
The successful group I saw was the “Urashima Taro” group. These group mates made their skit really interesting by trying to attract children in grade 1 and 3.
Overall, I was very scared and nervous that butterflies were flying in my stomach before we presentate our skit. I was thinking that what if 1st and 3rd grade these days are becoming mature and never enjoys the skit. However our group, even though they do not look fully satisfied, seemed to enjoy it and me either.
And here is the most successful clip we have!
