First and foremost, I'd like to thank everyone for the time and effort you're devoted to the play.
In my opinion, this drama reflects the general concept of primary school leavers' feelings: They are expected to worry, cry & feel scared before entering sec. school. But in fact, many of us were only too happy to get into St. Rose, and none of us felt as helpless as 'Laurel'. However, when we were inspiring the script with William, we only gave him the ideas which we thought would be accepted by the general audience. (It would be rather awkward if we produced a play with primary graduates smiling joyfully and chatting away merrily!) As a result, the script didn't really meant what we felt.
Now we weren't very experienced actors, and we had some difficulties getting into these made-up emotions. These were not what we had experienced, so we felt funny and laughed frequently. The melody of Song 1 is already a bit too jumpy and filled with anticipation, and singing in a light-hearted way only made it more difficult to create a rexed atmosphere. Thus we didn't really blend well with our lines.
Nevertheless, as this is our first time co-operation and first-time creation, I still consider it a success. It's everyone's efforts throughout the year, and we appreciate one another's hard work.
