Doing it the first time, with very little hope yet aiming at gaining experience from the contest, our boys used the 10 minutes of preparation time to prepare a fun-filled scene of a restaurant with a new clumsy waiter. Their sense of humour, creativity and voice clarity touched the adjudicator. A well-deserved Third Place (scored 84) was granted to us among 14 brilliant teams.
Their coach Mrs Rebecca Ho reflects the experience as follows:
“What do you know about improvisation ?
It is all about fun !
It is fun to receive your topic from the adjudicator's hand. It is fun to race with time to figure out the plot of your drama. It is fun to act with lines that just come up in mind . They are the charisma of improvisation.
Come to have a taste yourself, you will love it!”
To conclude on our group performance this year at the Speech Festival, we are proud to tell you that ALL FIVE teams we sent out were awarded!
