Overall, I performed well, and I exaggerated my roles, and that was why the audience found it funny. Especially the grade 1′s who were younger. But in grade 3, the children were more mature so they did not find it as amusing. In the first performance, I didn’t do as well as I could’ve because I was nervous, and I did not know what to expect. But from the second performance, I was relaxed, so I did a much better job.
My best performance was the second and third ones, because I was relaxed, and I knew exactly what to do. I enjoyed my roles more, so I was able to really put lots of expression and emphasis.
My difficulties were that at the beginning, I was nervous, so I talked too fast so I needed to relax more. The solution to that would be to not get nervous, and just pretend you are doing it in front of the class.
My achievements were that the classes found our performances funny and entertaining, so that was a good thing. I also didn’t forget my lines, and I was very dramatic with my voice, and made it sound like a old man who loved himself.
I think that the group who did 浦島太郎 (Urashimataro) were successful because they engaged themselves with audience, and they were very excited when they did this. They also put good voice in their roles, and they were enthusiastic when they were acting. THEY HAD SO MUCH ENERGY!!! Which is a key point in drama.
