THE SMK Assunta English Literary and Debating Society’s Literary Night was performed to a full house of parents and students from neighbouring schools.
Themed Mirrors, this year’s show was different as the students performed pieces from various genres.
The night started with Carnivale, a colourful and energetic act, which set the tone for the evening with dazzling visual lighting and sound effects.
The students recited poetry including the works of William Shakespeare.
Plays performed were Mirror Mirror, a tragic tale of an anorexic girl written by Singaporean playwright Verena Tay and The Birthday of the Infanta by Oscar Wilde.
Both pieces were well received by the audience.
Violin recitals, a dance and a comic solo act, French Toast, provided the lighter moments.
The comic act gave an insight into the life of a teenager whose phone conversations were hilarious.
A well-enacted comic version of Medusa had the crowd in stitches. The finale was Snow White which brought back memories of Mirror, mirror on the wall?
Society president Sandhya Pillay in her speech thanked the principal and teachers for the assistance rendered.
Teacher adviser Sabina Kok said the performances reflected the collaborative effort that Assuntarians had put in to ensure a successful show.
