Indonesia Expat - - ANNOUNCEMENTS -

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.
