Hi guys! What’s up? I am as sorry as I could have ever been that I have not done a post for quite a long time, even when I have an exciting post to do about my trip to the Royal Theatre in Stratford with my school! 😦 As it was a long time, I will tell you about my week.
Firstly, I will tell you about my trip to the theatre. I went to watch Sinbad the Sailor. It was a pantomime. In most of them, the story is changed. This show was no different to the others. They had made a whole story up that included Sinbad, Sinbada (his elder sister), a princess, a sultan, the evil Prince Nauseous, a monkey called Funky Monkey and his parents, a genie, a 9 headed monster and some drunken pirates.
I will tell you a short summary of the play. There was once a great adventurer named Sinbad. He travelled with his sister Sinbada and Funky Monkey. One day, they all went to the sultan’s and the Princess’s palace. The two royals were relieved to see Sinbad and his friends (Sinbada and Funky Monkey), as they had heard that they had drowned at sea and died. With the sultan’s permission he announced that he will retire from his adventures and asked to marry the Princess.
However, there was a problem… Prince Nauseous was already marrying her! To settle the matter, the royals decided that Sinbad and the prince should have a race. They should race to an island and search for a buried casket that belonged to the dead queen (the sultan’s wife) whoever found it and returned home with it would marry the princess. During the show, it was revealed to us that Sinbad was a scaredy cat and that he did not go on the adventures but Sinbada and Funky Monkey did! People thought that Sinbad went on the adventures as he told the story.
On the journey, they came across many hazards. There were poisonous bananas, a 9 headed monster, a storm and a genie working for the prince, however she helped Sinbad and his friends.
The story is far too long, therefore, I can not write it all. At the end of the story Prince nauseous gave the casket to Sinbad so he could marry the princess. They got married and in the wedding, they had a dance called the Funky Monkey where we could all join in as well! 🙂 I had so much fun at the pantomime, we even got ice cream at the break! But that was not my favourite part… a teacher from our school was chosen from the crowd to go up on stage and dance! He even had his own solo! It was HILARIOUS!!!
Also, to finish of I am over the moon to announce that I have got a new laptop!!! 🙂 . I gave some of my saving money and my parents paid the rest.
OH! I forgot. I started karate classes this week, but that can wait until next week.
So that’s it for today, AUREVOIR!
