Homeschool silly-bus: Stage Performance 101

My job involves speaking and ‘performing’ to kids, teens and sometimes adults.  My sparring partner has always been my better half, Ridz aka Abi.  That’s how we make our living so far, alhamdulillah.

However, two weeks ago, I had two new sparring partners to accompany me on stage.  Hahahaha my backup singers…muahahaha… Muhammad and Musa.

We performed a Readers Theater, “Small Red Fish, Big Blue Fish”.  Musa was the narrator, Muhammad became the small red fish, and yours truly the BIG fish.  The event was Karnival Generasi Berilmu (KGB), held in Kompleks PKNS BBBangi.

dsc005201 It was supposed to be a storytelling corner but I changed the concept to Readers Theater (RT).  This is a popular activity to encourage literacy and love for reading.  Come on…storytelling, sorang je bercerita, RT ramai-ramai atas pentas.  No need to memorize scripts, no need for props and costumes.  Just a script and play with your voice and intonation.  Easy daisy!


The audience (parents & kiddos) and the crowd were sporting and supportive.  I couldn’t resist making them play rock, paper, scissors and sad, mad, glad.  The best thing was…they participated.  Coooooool!!!!
