The Musical Performances
Integrated National Curriculum School (INCS) produced its first musical and audiences were mesmerized by the performances that took place on November 14th and November 15th, 2019. Teachers and students of INCS had only one and a half months to prepare and rehearsed for the musical after the year-end school examination period.
The musical, an adaptation from Disney’s Aladdin, was a full-fledge in-house production. The students went through professional vocal training and dance choreography routines by INCS music/voice/acting coaches. Costume designs were colorful and eye-catching. The stage and props were sights to behold – thanks to the creativity of INCS stage manager and scenic designer Mr. Tengku Aizad. He cleverly utilized special effects such as hologram, fog machine and lighting to make the musical come alive. Halfway through the musical, audience were wowed by Genie appearing via hologram effects.
Personal Development through Performing Arts
INCS Musical artistic director and scriptwriter, Ms. Isferra Rezana, who also took on the starring role of villain “Jafar”, said that the students practiced hard and displayed strong team spirit which resulted in the great success of both shows.
As part of the school’s CCA Programme, the musical production fulfilled many of the programme’s objectives to develop student talent, confidence and creativity through performing arts, as well as cultivating team work and good character values. INCS Founder, Ms. Jenny Sim and President, Ms. SP Lee believe that children should be exposed to doing charity works from a young age. The INCS Musical raised over RM29,000.00 from ticket sales and donations from generous sponsors. The funds were used to purchase necessity items that were distributed to several orphanages and old folks home in the Shah Alam and Klang area.
After the musical events, INCS students visited two orphanages and a home for the elderly. Student activities aimed to foster character development were organized such as spring cleaning of the seniors home, distributing gifts and interactive games with the orphans.
The Musical cast also performed excerpts from the musical production as part of the charity program. It was truly heart-warming to see INCS students feeding the elderly folks and engaging with them. At the end of the visit, both students and the residence of Ebenezer Home were tearing up as they said goodbye. These are important lessons that students learned about the character of Gratefulness, Caring and Generosity.
