After 3 weeks of writing and rehearsing, the grade 9 students performed their original melodrama plays for grade 8 classes. Their challenge was to tell a modern-day story using the melodrama style. In addition to this challenge, they were required to use all melodrama techniques/ elements studied in class, such as melodrama gestures, asides, stock characters and melodrama plot structure. Congratulations to all groups on a job well done!
