Reflections For Cinderel-LAH (Ethan)

- The props were well made and detailed. The colors on the props enhanced the image of the props and made them look more eye-catching.

- The actors were well trained the scenes were well rehearsed. The transition of the crew from one scene to another was perfect and had almost no flaws.

- The music which was played and the songs which were sang made the show more captivating to watch. I was amazed how well the voices of the singers, the background music and the music from the orchestra seemed to harmonize so wonderfully.

- There was interaction with audience and the fusion of Singaporean English into the show. That made Cinderel-LAH stand out from other performances.

- Overall, it was a fun and enjoyable experience watching the show and being mesmerized by the music and songs.

Cinderel-LAH! Wow~By Lai Ziying :)

Musical dramas are my favourites and what fasitaste me the most is the experience of enrichment they provide the audience with. Music is a media which is able to convey emotions regardless of the language used, thus, it is a very good media to express our storylines to our audience.

What impressed me by the crew of Cinderel-LAH! are the following points:

The well-prepared crew
-Music Band
-Actors and actress
-Prop In-chargers
-The settings
-Creative ways to respond to the audience if the audience's reactions are not what the crew expects. e.g “Let me tell you a secret, ‘if she doesn’t wake up, the show will never end.’”

The Creative storyline: Who says Cinderel-LAH cannot leave her glass high-heel behind intentionally? And who says Prince must be a prince? :D

Successful engagements by lively dances and songs

Other Elements: 
Effects for Engagement: Magic--the flying handkerchief

Involvement of social phenomenal: People in Singapore may not be willing or daring enough to voice out their opinions, so during the show, the actors encouraged the audience to ‘talk back’ and that definitely got a warm reaction and applaud from the audience. 
Interaction with the audience

The Time for appreciation: 
Behind each success, there are a lot of hardworking and diligent people working towards a common goal. Therefore when some time was allocated for the actors and actress to give appreciation to the audience, the music band and the whole crew, I felt good as people's whole-hearted appreciation always give the others a resonant warmth which touch their hearts.

*Call to action was used: To buy the CDs and the booklets to show support and suggest the show to other friends and relatives of ours. (Making all opportunities to earn profits.) When it comes to our SYF, the case will be making full use of all the opportunities to widespread our performance and gain support!

Rooms for Improvements:
Singlish-Not good for children because they may be influenced by the poor English.

The above are the details of my reflection on Cinderel-LAH! Once again, thanks to SST and the teachers  for providing us with such an engaging and precious experience. :)

Cinderel-LAH! Reflection (Carisa)

Good Points

  • The props switched very fast.
  • The props are simple but tells the audience a lot about what is happening.
  • It is very localised and keeps the audience engaged.
  • The voices of the actors and actresses were very strong and audible.
Bad Points

  • Audience that are not Singaporeans or have not lived in Singapore for a long time will not get the jokes and the play will be boring for them.
I enjoyed the play overall and I feel that we can learn from the play and apply it to our SYF performance. I think the areas we should improve are the interaction between the actors and audience and also the audibility of the actors' voices.

Cinderel-LAH reflection ( Yi Lin )

The actors and actresses were very skilled and they did not forget their lines. The volume was loud and the pronunciation of the words were very clear. The whole show was very 'singaporean', when they used dialects and converse with each other. The use of the lighting was good. It was interactive therefore making it more interesting and not that boring.

Good Points

Props & Set
  • Props & Set were switch fast
  • Props have bright colors, eye-catching
Music & Sound Effect
  • Meaning of Song are funny
  • While the actors are singing, they still move about (e.g. dancing)
  • Sound Effects and the actions of the actors "match"
  • Actors interact with the audiences by getting them to response and they also went down the stage to interact with them
Bad Points
  • The play is too localized that some of the audience like the foreign does not understand.
