With special thanks to…
This production was a whole school effort and would not have been possible without the help and support from our students, teachers and parents right across our school community. 

Cast, we did it! 48 of you, 11 weeks of ECA, a few extra days of rehearsal, and we did it!

First and foremost many thanks to our ‘spectacular’ Director Ms Jasmine. We would also like to offer heartfelt appreciation to Mr Robert for his assistance in running the Key Stage 3 Christmas Production ECA, and to all the wonderful teachers in the Drama Department, Ms Alex for her directorial input during moments when fresh ideas were appreciated, and Ms Shelley for her backstage and organisational support.
Together, we'd like to express our gratitude to the wardrobe team Amo, Anjana, April, Atarah, Gracie, Raya, and Sharanya who were coordinated by Ms Martine, Ms Sylvia and Mr Daniel for helping to source and repurpose costumes to bring our fairytale characters to life.

Big thanks to our IB Theatre students Alice, Smera and Tamara for their help and ability to morph into many roles, from helping with front-of-house duties, costumes, hair and makeup to coaching younger students.

Thank you to Hannah, Anjana, April, Raya, and Sharanya for forming our hair and makeup crew at short notice.

Thank you to Ms Karen and her team of talented seniors, Amee, Chibi, Jaidee, Sanya, Ursha, and Vanshika, who were responsible for the fantastic fairytale props you see on stage. Special thanks to Mr Alastair for his delightful back projections.

Our thanks extend to Mr Nathan and the ICT Department - Mr Keith for their assistance in ticketing, as well as Khun Naoki for his technical assistance with sound and lighting. Thank you to Nita for designing our programme artwork. The production also would not have been possible without the tremendous efforts of the maids and Estates Team coordinated by Khun Big and Khun Cream.

Finally, we'd like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the STA Community as a whole: all of our students, our parents, and our teachers for your support of the Performing Arts and for encouraging our students to be the best they can be.
