Binus School Serpong Celebrates 10th Anniversary with The Little Mermaid Musical
On March 3, Binus School Serpong showcased The Little Mermaid, a musical that was performed by students from kindergarten to high school. Teachers, staff and even parents also got involved in the production for the school’s tenth anniversary.
The original story follows the character of Ariel, a young mermaid who dreams of the human world and eventually finds a way to get there. About 300 actors were involved in The Little Mermaid by playing various kinds of roles, ranging from animals and plants under the sea, to mermaids and humans. The play was also supported by live music, including an orchestra that was comprised of 43 members and a choir team of 52 singers.
In preparation for The Little Mermaid, actors were busy rehearsing for three months, while the rest took care of the set, costumes and properties. One parent said in a press release statement that Binus students have creative talents that need to be recognized.
“Until now I am still in awe by the potential that Binus School Serpong has. I believe that this potential is very rich that they [the students and everyone involved in The Little Mermaid] are able to showcase this musical. Aside from that, children and parents like myself learned many things like organizational skills, teamwork and how to channel our creative potential,” Margie Hardigan said.
