PG Play 2019 – The Wizard of Oz- The Light Within
Mayo College Girls’ School on its 31st Annual Prize Giving staged an exclusive adaptation of The Wizard of Oz- The Light Within, the journey of self- discovery of a thirteen year old girl called Dorothy, who is lost in the unfamiliar land of Oz and struggles to find her way back home to Kansas. She is joined by worthy companions like Scarecrow, Tinman and Lion, who, like her are unaware of their concealed attributes. Together, they are guided by the light within while they ruminate, confront and transcend conflict to attain self- actualization. It was an enriching and memorable experience for students to travel on this ‘yellow brick road’ who spiritedly worked on every aspect of this play. Sahiba Kaur, Gracevera Kaur, Amruta Benor Krishnan, Triloka Shah, Sanidhi Singh and Akansha Majumdar breathed life into their roles. The student Directors- Vasundhara Purawat, Tanvi Jhawar, Aashinjina Santram, Lakshyata Kumari, Sriroopa Neogi, Sahiba Kaur, Asees Sandhu and Ishikka Ladia under the mentorship of Mr. Arun Agnihotri rendered master strokes to the picturesque tapestry crafted on stage.
