Amidst sparkling lights and a myriad of hues, The Annual Production of Delhi Public School RK Puram took place on December 14 and 15 wherein the timeless classic, The Sound of Music, was brought to life on the stage through an amalgamation of lilting voices and graceful dances accompanying adroit thespians.
The school, with a specially constructed stage, exceptional lighting and sound effects coupled with live music and singing provided the perfect atmosphere for putting up an adaptation of the play which traces the life of Maria, a simple but courageous governess, who wins the hearts of the Von Trapp family. Despite being set in the backdrop of war and the tribulations faced by the family, one leaves with an optimistic outlook and the message of determination and resilience rings true.
On December 15, chief guest VK Shunglu, Chairman, DPS Society and Chairman Managing Committee, DPS RK Puram addressed the audience, drawing attention to the growing importance of Fine Arts. He further expressed that the Fine Arts are neglected and considered a hobby, when they are, in actuality, so much more. He appreciated the talent of the students, calling them an asset of the school and congratulated them for putting up an ‘out of the world’ performance.
Principal Vanita Sehgal delivered the vote of thanks, thanking the event coordinators — Abha Chona, Sudeepta Chatterjee, Sanya Taneja, Renu Bassi and all the people involved in making the show a phenomenal success.
The standing ovation, as well as the smile on the faces of the content audience, was a testament to the massive success of the event that left the school echoing with the sound of music.
