Format of re-telling a story I took part in a play when I was in S.1. The play was about Cinderella who was a very pretty but poor girl. Although she was from a rich family, her step-mother was wicked and did not love her. At the beginning of the story, Cinderella was ill- treated by her step mother and sisters but she had a lot of friends who could help her overcome problems. The climax of the story happens when Cinderella wanted to join a party which was going to be held in the palace because the prince was trying to get a wife. The story ends when the prince tried to look for his bride with a pair of glass slippers which Cinderella had left behind.
Format of expressing opinions It was a wonderful play for many reasons. First of all, we had a lot of singing and dancing. In addition, We had to put on funny and traditional costumes. Last but by no means least, the script was so hilarious that we tried very hard not to laugh when we were reciting the lines. Well, although we did not win any prize, it was a really memorable experience for all of us.
