Twisted Fairytale Drama

That was the assignment handed to us by Ms Ida, the cute lecturer I wrote about in my last entry. The one who’d go into extreme details in telling her stories complete with hilarious face expressions. She’d make jokes (which would sound like something from a chick-lit) but I’d be the only one laughing because my other classmates just don’t get it (-_-“).

So anyway, when I heard about the assignment I was so excited because fairytale is so my thang bebeh. We got into group of four, me, Syakira, Nurul and Miza. And only later Ain and Farain joined us. At first to be honest, I was quite frustrated by the look of where our group was heading. Because they refused to appoint one leader or director to guide the play. I guess they thought they could do everything together, choose everything together, plan everything together, and based on my experience THAT WOULD TAKE A FJDSKIJ LONG TIME TO WORK. And some more, being in Part one, our schedule is so jdhusjef tight. Anyway, I just went with the flow, but at the same time, I had something in mind.

For the weekend I went back and took all Alisya’s fairytale story books and went through it one by one. Redridinghood lah, Robinhood lah, Beauty and The Beast lah. Si Tanggang je takde. Mungkinkah kerana Alisya poyo taknak baca cerita-cerita rakyat??

Then when I got back, I did the script in 30 minutes tajuk, Alice In Horrorland, and texted each one of them “Weh skrip dah siap datang bilik aku dan tengok”. We only had one week. And its already Monday, we’d be performing in Friday which means what, 3 more days aje nak practice? Sigh. Then diorang gelabah takde skrip lagi so I sort of save everything (dalam hati, I knew it). So I lantik diri sendiri bukan sebagai leader, tetapi untuk guide the play.

I didnt even let them choose the character (punya tamak aku nak control semua) because when writing a script, you would already have something in your mind on the characters that just wouldn’t translate into the scripts, you see. And furthermore, I didn’t want to fulfill everyone’s expectations on the characters. Free hair je, princess. Ganas je, wolf. Lemah lambut je grandmother. Yawn gila weh.

Syakira, the biggest one among us and the most ganas was Alice.

Nurul, the most lemah lembut, who used to be a mandarin speaking teacher (hence the softness) was The Wolf in Disguise, Redridinghood.

Miza was Robinhood yang macho. I gave her this character because she kept asking then siapa nak jadi lelaki as if perempuan tak boleh berlakon lelaki padahal kalau berlakon jadi lelaki macam macho ntah-ntah dapat extra mark.

Farain, the shy girl was the Magic Mirror yang annoying yang bila orang tanya jalan dia jawab Im not a navigator. Sumpah annoying punya mirror mdnfiejb.

And last but not least Ain, who is very soft-spoken, was The Judge and also The Motherly Cupboard who had a towel rack as son.

Of course I was the narrator so I could guide the whole play kaaaaaaan. Like if anyone make mistake then I could cover for them. BUT NO ONE DID THANK GOD BECAUSE WE PRACTICED AND PRACTICED AND I WOULD TEXT EVERYONE WHENEVER I’M FREE LIKE COME TO MY ROOM COME TO MY ROOM MACAM DESPERATE LONELY GIRL KE APA BONGOK. And on the very last night of the rehearsal, Sempana Alam Buana pula black out and we continued rehearsing our lines in the dark why are we so committed T_T

Sebenarnya banyak lagi nak tulis tapi macam terlalu poyo sebab the play cuma 10 menet ke hape ntah kenapa aku excited semacam nak cerita balek neh.

Oh yes Im excited because Im so proud of us :’) AKU SAYANG KAU ORANG SEMUA.

BECAUSE WE’RE NAMED THE BEST GROUP BUT MAYBE BECAUSE OTHER GROUPS WERE READING THE SCRIPTS THE WHOLE TIME WTF BUT STILL.. DAPAT MAKAN FREE MS IDA BELANJA. Dan makan lunch bersama MR IZUAN ISMAIL and AZFAR eh asal aku nak tulis Azfar huruf besar sekarang. Mr Izuan Ismail is an English lecturer here and he reads my blog and was excited that I’m coming down to Johore to study. Haha he was overwhelmed to see me and I was overwhelmed that someone would feel that way when they see me T_T

Semangat seh.

Bila orang belanja makan harus sopan santun ala kadar walaupun sebenarnya nak order western. Biasa dia!

Semua orang termasuk Ms Ida dan class rep kesayangan beliau. Mr Izuan Ismail dan Hanis Zalikha tiada di dalam gambar, nanti saya linkkan kamu semua ke belog beliau ya.

  21. Hanis, u NOT just solely on ur ability to NOT read the script, but also ur ACTING SKILLS which r indeed better than the rest!!! Looking forward to "witness" more of ur creativity in this "belog" and in my class :) - Ms Ida

  22. More pics of you maybe? Hehehe

  23. AZFAR!!! OMG I MISS HIM SO MUCH! HAHAH Kenapa huruf besar part AZFAR tu?

    Look, when he told me that he'll be leaving (me) for UiTM Segamat, I told him that "look for Hanis Zalikha. Model gorgeous wey!" and he went, "???haa will do"

    Tak tahu pulak sekarang dah member baik punya sampai Azfar pun dah jadi AZFAR! HAHAHAH!

  24. wei hanis, tade rakam2 ke, youtube2 la sket, nak gak tgk lakonan tu...heheheheh

  25. ms ida,

    "but also ur ACTING SKILLS which r indeed better than the rest!!!"

    lol. forgive me if im wrong, but i dont think being a narrator constitutes acting. :P

    she may have shown an affinity for writing and producing.. but not acting.. yet. hehe

  26. Mr/Ms Anonymous: err thanks for quoting me :P The statement was intended for the whole group. Hence the "acting skills." The context of my earlier post should've been "ur group's acting skills". Ngeh. Pardon the omission ye? Cheers!:)

  27. oh dear i got cerita hantu pasal the place tempat you belajar tu, but dont think ill tell you nanti you takut lak =P

  28. so how about film studies a.k.a studying films?
