Pinocchio and The Strings of Lies

 

We grew up with that fantasy stories around us. Part of childhood, right? Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty. We were once fooled by this story, making us believe that there’s really a magic mirror and talking animals. Just kidding!

 

Well, anyways, Pinocchio is a well known story. Theater Arts unit decided to make a play about it. So I’m going to have an analysis on their play now.

 

Characters:

Pinocchio (protagonist)

Captain hook of Peter Pan

Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty

Jafar from Aladdin

Anastacia & Drizella the step sisters of Cinderella

Queen and King of heart from Alice and Wonderland

Ursula from Little Mermaid

Mother Gothel of Rapunze

 

Settings:

 

They have different settings. And some of those are:

 

The garden

Ocean

Ship

 

Climax

 

Well, I guess the climax of the story is when Pinocchio get caught by those people he lied to.

 

Short background

Pinocchio wants to be a real boy so as his journey goes on finding the answer to his problem. He encountered several problems and he lied.

 

Creative team

Stage set up

-I have to praise those people behind the stage set up. That was great and they really match the setting to what it’s supposed to be.

 

Make up and Costumes!

-Great job for this team! They made the characters alive!

 

 

 

 

Technical

 

Lighting

– They use the proper color combination which brings good effects to the setting ang even to the actors and actresses.

 

Mic

-Not consistent. Sometimes it’s too loud, sometimes not

 

The characters itself

 

– A for effort! They didn’t buckle. They memorize their script.

-They don’t pronounce words properly. Most of the time I heard people saying  “Ano daw sabi?”(What did they say?) “Hindi ko maintindihan pinagsasasabi!” (I don’t understand what they’re saying!)

-The acting is awkward sometimes.
