Great skit performance

Congratulations to all the cast members for putting on a great performance. It was fun working with you guys. Based on the audience's response, I believe we can make the skit better (back to the writing). Maybe for Easter. What say you?

Big thanks to Josephine for documenting the performance. Check all the photos here.

Introducing The Cast

Justin & Benjamin are the 2 main characters of the skit. Although rather new to acting, these two have been given the great task of carrying the entire story flow. Great pressure on them but I believe they can pull it off nicely.

Sabrina, Jean, Anndrea... These 3 are considered veterans when it comes to acting. Although only involved in one fourth of the entire story, they are a crucial element.

Samuel & Anna. In my opinion, Samuel has the best role in the skit. If I were to play a part in it, I would take his character, as he's the master of wordplay & his way with words has an tremendous effect on the storyline. But Anna will be there to give him a taste of his own medicine. The skit gets interesting from here onwards.

And finally, introducing Caleb Raj, the HERO!! Even though his lines are little compared to Justin's, Ben's & Samuel's, his actions represent the main message of this skit. Having played mostly comedic roles in the past, Caleb would have to use all his media knowledge to pull this one off.

P.S - I forgot the last time I directed a play / skit. I think I've lost my touch. Must get it back!!

The Last Hurray?

Finally something to blog about without offending some poor guy's feelings...

I knew 3 weeks is too short a time to prepare for a skit, but saying 'yes' wasn't a difficult decision to make. There was a tugging in my heart & I knew we should do it. Besides, who knows what the future holds for TOUCH & our God-given dreams come April? Could this be our last hurray? I don't know; all I know is we must put on a great performance & deliver the gospel.

Credit to my wife, May, for coming up with the initial idea. And with the help of Justin and Daniel (decided to keep the script writing team tight this time), this one might just be our best script yet!! Everything will be done in just one scene - something we haven't tried before. So it's gonna be interesting...

The greatest pressure will of course fall on the actors & actresses. We only finished the script last Saturday, & our practices will be have be squeezed into the next few days. Adding further to the fact that there's a lot of script to remember (even though it's only 1 scene), this is the first time I'm writing the script without basing on any of our casts. So the actors & actresses will have to really ACT this time - a challenge I believe the cast is more than capable of.

Here are snap shots of my co-writers:
