Readers' Theatre - An Inspector Calls

Today Zahra, Farzana, and Sejal had a little readers' theatre session. They read through J. B. Priestly's "An Inspector Calls." We had been discussing the themes in the play for about a month before we actually sat down to read the text. It's a good old-fashioned post-war play that was popular in England in the 50s. While reading the play the three readers experimented with their own voices, did a lot of Voice Acting (yes!), giggled, and got totally engrossed in the process. Bravo!

Theatre Production by Prachyanat School of Acting and Design

The experience MAY Be integrated into your Additional Info, Resume, or Activity after you send your applications. I understand that most of you probably did not experience a professional theatre performance on professional stage. This would also introduce you to a very significant part of cultural life. You can bring in as many as 5 friends/family-members. The auditorium has a 500 seat capacity so this wont be a problem. Admission is FREE but ask for invitation card (the image is on right-hand side) within 10th January. The image on your left is from "Laljatra", a theatrical procession carried out by the students of Prachyanat School of Acting and Design. Click to see the enlarged image.

What Next - After the 1st Bout of Applications Sent

  1. Submit Additional Info - I will not work on the supplements unless this is done first.
  2. Prepare the Supplements - this time standard of Supps will be more demanding. 
  3. Must start working on General Research Paper. (I suspect NONE has started it yet.)
  4. Sending a General Research Paper AND a Technical Research Paper will be crucial in securing an Admission and Financial Aid. 
  5. Anyone failing to submit PLAN for 2 Research Papers will be Prevented from attending class from 6th January Onwards. Rufiyat's example should be kept in mind. 
  6. Financial Aid Papers Review - I will start from 9th January onwards.
