Hi folks! Here are some pictures from our show on the 22nd of April. It was entitled “And….the Legacy goes on”. Just to give a brief background…the first half was on the life of our founder, Manockjee Curstejee as narrated by his father Cursetjee Manockjee Shroff, or the Khada Parsi as he is better known…the statue at Byculla bridge is his. It was a beautiful depiction, moving many to tears at the end.The beginning itself, showing the credits, was enough to make the audience sit up and say “wow”! It was in contemporary form showing the evils done to women….sati, child marriage, female infanticide, etc. It was beautifully choreographed. Post interval began with “Be Our Guest” where our western dancers were in the aisles of the auditorium, and the classical ones on stage. We then moved on to a cafeteria where we had senoritas dancing, and then the bakers realized they had forgotten about an order for a 150kg cake! (Our 150th anniversary, get it??) And so there’s chaos….till a beautiful spirit appears and with the help of elves, makes it magically. So we have all the ingredients come in, in dance and song till the finale where we made the cake with cancan dancers…..it was really awesome! The fact that we had the best auditorium in Mumbai, NCPA, and fantastic lights, sound and music…it was a day to remember! And I am awfully proud of my part in it!!! The days of practice in the heat, the long hours, tempers flying…everything was worth it!!!!
Beautiful . . brought a tear to many an eye . . .
