International School's got talent!
Young actors performing an extract of Shakespeare's ''A Midsummer Night's Dream''—including ''the wall.''
That's what the show's called and that's exactly what the International School of Manosque—which is now officially called the International School of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur—has got! And what talent they all showed on Wednesday evening at the Theatre Jean le Blue in Manosque. From rock 'n' roll, rap, gymnastics, hip hop and Bollywood dancing to refined classical music, a Chinese fan dance, and an extract from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, this show had a bit of everything.
But it wasn't just the ISM pupils who wooed the audience; some very talented mums also showed what they were made of: from India, mums Dhamishtha Parmar, Sunita Rathi and Manisha Patel gave a lovely performance in beautiful costumes dancing to the song Aaja Nachle; and Julie Onstott and Jodi Jewell gave a rendering performance of "Look to the Rainbow" with fine voices and exquisite piano playing.
Let's not forget the comperes either: Bas, Joe and Tyler did a great job at introducing all the acts with their easygoing banter and their relaxed, yet confident way of introducing each act.
