DREAM CHASERS
A Musical Play by Mr Geoff Oliver


During Drama week, Saturday 14th April – Saturday 21st April 2018, our school will present five performances of our latest production, a musical play: Dream Chasers .

The play is a musical drama written by Geoff Oliver based on the suggestion from a past student, Lydia Wong, and as well, from the Core Production Team. It features twelve songs and several dances, all of which originate from our students.

The play is set in Hong Kong in the 1960s and Hong Kong today and deals with how a group of friends realized or failed to realize their dreams. The style of acting is unusual in that we use ‘alienation effect’ where the cast jump in and out of character, sometimes playing their role and sometimes being themselves. The scenes also switch backward and forward in time.

學校戲劇週:公演音樂劇 -「追夢無疆」

本校謹訂於二零一八年四月十四日(星期六)至二十一日(星期六)公演五場英語音樂劇 「追夢無疆」

本年度的音樂劇由Mr Geoff Oliver擔任編劇和導演,劇本的意念來自校友Lydia Wong和學生製作團隊,師生們同心攜手,旨在讓嘉賓和校友再次沉浸在聖瑪利一年一度充滿藝術氣息的戲劇氛圍中。本劇的主要內容由十二首原創樂曲和舞蹈序列串聯而成,故事內容豐富,情節緊湊。

音樂劇的背景設定為一九六零年代和今日的香港。一群朋友自少時起便認識交往,他們滿腔熱血,各自努力追尋自己的夢想。有人成功實踐,有人失望落空,命運各異。本劇最非比尋常的特色是「疏離效果」,演員們時而擔演劇中的人物角色,時而從劇情中跳越出來,變回原本的自己;加上時空交替、今昔幻化的情節,讓人目不暇給,歎為觀止。

賈寶玉夢遊太虛幻境,看見「假作真時真亦假,無為有處有為無。」這副對聯;《莊子》一書有「莊周夢蝶」的寓言故事。沒有夢的虛,又何來現實的真切?沒有夢的幻,又何來人世的淒美?你的夢是甚麼?它怎樣牽絆你的生活?又怎樣成就你的人生?這是一個讓人迷惑的話題。本年度的音樂劇,或許能讓大家找到玄機,親身體驗一次「無疆夢遊」的魅力。
