Community Theatre 2018
Tampines Primary School Community Theatre 2018 Title of Play: Weather or not? Area of Focus: Environment
Global warming leads to rising temperature on Earth, hence climate change. How can we stop global warming? Can human innovation save our Earth?
Tampines Primary School’s 2018 Community Theatre production addresses the heightening global concern and highlights how the pupils of Sunshine Primary School and the rest of the school community join hands in playing their part to save the Earth.
In the story, the pupils display passion and support for “Go Green” efforts which drive them into extensive research on the causes and effects of global warming. Hand in hand, with great enthusiasm and encouragement from those around them, they embark on environmental-friendly projects such as the implementation of energy-saving initiatives and the distribution of reusable bags to promote BYOB “Bring Your Own Bag”. The pupils’ contributions resulted in a community outreach project.
The ending of the play was heartfelt with a projection of the future in 30 years’ time. The adult Lucas Chan, portrayed by a teacher actor, tugged the heart strings of the audience with the closing line, ”We must all do our part before it’s too late, too late for the future generation.”
Indeed, the play was a journey of breakthrough for the pupils and teachers involved. The best part of it all, despite the serious theme of the play, humour was never in short supply. This is the essence of Community Theatre.
