Benorix Hur

Last night it was finally time for us to enjoy Linnea in her school play. This term she too wanted to try the drama production and signed up for the Grade 6-8 production of the original play 'Benorix Hur', written purposely for Raha International school.

The story, inspired by 'Ben Hur' and 'Asterix and Obelix', was about the girl Benorix, dreaming about becoming a chariot racer and defending her Gaul village against the Romans.

Linnea was one of the extras, first playing a villager, then a prisoner and finally a citizen.

 Here she is front right, as a prisoner rowing the boat:

Time for the chariot races! Linnea still on the far right, as a citizen in different parts of the play:

The curtain call - great job guys! A huge cast of over 70 performers!

I really enjoyed this play! The past few drama productions we've watched at school have been musicals and the music have been rather overpowering. Not only was this easier to hear, but the story was really fun. Well done all involved!
