Trimester 2 Begins!

It is officially the start of trimester 2. So far, students have been taking part in icebreaker activities and playing drama games to get warmed up for three months of theatre arts! The energy is high, and everyone is excited to engage, create, perform and inquire. If you would like to know specifics about the Theatre Arts 7 & 8 units or look at the course syllabus, check out the MYP Theatre Arts menu.

Below are some candid shots of what we have been doing in drama class this week.

#StageCatsTruth

CISB StageCats are back with an all-new production called “Nothing but the Truth”. 

Is Elizabeth Warren a witch? An angel? An evil villain? These questions are at the heart of “Nothing but the Truth”, a new play that places a young girl on trial for suspected supernatural abilities. In this family-friendly comedy with an important message for all ages, a colorful cast of characters take the witness stand to give many different versions of the truth. Can we trust any of them? Find out the truth on November 25th and 26th.

This is an original play, written specifically for our school’s talented performers – who have previously thrilled audiences with hit performances of shows including “High School Musical” (2015), “Grease” (2016) and “Selfie” (2016). Over 40 students are involved in this celebration honesty and acceptance.

Please take a look at the show posters below for more information.

TICKETS: can be purchased in advance in the CISB Lobby, or from a member of the cast/crew. Tickets can also be reserved by emailing: patrick.connolly@cis-beijing.com or angela.knowles@cis-beijing.com
