Suchitra Academy celebrated its 9th Founder’s Day at their campus. BWF World Champion, PV Sindhu, was the chief guest for the event. Sindhu’s presence set the right tone for a spectacular evening, an outburst of vibrancy, talent and graceful performances.
Praveen Raju, the chief mentor of Suchitra Academy welcomed PV Sindhu. They say happiness comes in small packages. Well, the budding actors and dancers from Grades I-VI certainly proved the adage to be true.
The evening was reserved for a gala musical presentation of the famous fable ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ performed by the children of Grades I-III. The little kids enthralled the audience with their portrayal of Jack and how he vanquished the Giant. Peppy dances and adorable costumes kept the audience in “aaws and aahs”.
This was followed by ‘Arabian Nights’, the musical, performed to a mesmerised audience by Grades IV-VI. Six famous stories were narrated by Scheherazade to the king in order to save herself from execution. The actors brought the stories to life with their efficient performances, enhanced by many Arabic flavoured dances and a lot of special effects. The audience was also treated to a shower of coordinated rhythm and soul-lifting melody by the choir and the members of the school band.
Sindhu applauded the performances and congratulated the staff and the students for their efforts in presenting a programme par excellence. “The performances of the kids reminds me of my school days and the activities I was involved in, but these kids seem to be natural with their talent. I have been doing my fitness training in the Suchitra Academy for the last two-and-a-half years. I am virtually here every day for workout whenever I am in town and I can call this as my second home,” Sindhu said.
