Legend of the Conch Shell: Rehearsals Continue at Full Steam!

3 December 2009 - 12:43pm Comments Off

The countdown to the premier of Legend of the Conch Shell has hit the two-week mark! With time flying by, rehearsals continue to power full steam ahead.

So keen are the cast and crew to get the play absolutely perfect that even at this late date, tweaking is still happening to get everything just so – for example, the director Woon Fook Sen recently added three more children to the prostration scene. To us, this may appear to be a small gesture but to someone like Mr. Woon, who is experienced in the performing arts and has a keen eye for detail, that ‘gesture’ will leave a larger impact on the audience.

In fact, in all seven scenes of the play, everyone is working to do justice to Lama Tsongkhapa’s great deeds, by flawlessly presenting his life to leave a deep impression in the minds of the audience.

Throughout all of the dedicated rehearsing, the cast and crew enjoy the experience of putting the play together, finding amusement in everything to keep the mood lighthearted. However, no one ever loses their focus on what they need to do…which is to get the message of Tsongkhapa’s lifestory out!

As some members continue to rehearse, others manage to find amusement in something as serious as security detail!

Come and learn about Lama Tsongkhapa! Discover how lead dancer Lee Swee Keong, director Woon Fook Sen and choreographer Shirene Chan have combined modern and Tibetan dance styles!

Don’t miss the Legend of the Conch Shell, coming to you this 17th to 19th December 2009!
