The MYSTIC SHOEMAKER - A Modern Fairy Tale
A Musical Play by Mr Geoff Oliver


During Drama week, Saturday 27th April – Saturday 4th May 2019, our school will present five performances of our latest production, a musical play: The Mystic Shoemaker - A Modern Fairy Tale .

The play is a musical drama written by Mr Geoff Oliver with some input from the Core Production Team with songs and dances composed by our students.

The story is a quirky tale set ‘long ago and far away’ and deals with an isolated community who, because of the peculiarities of the local shoemaker, all wear odd shoes instead of matching pairs. Challenges from the outside world herald an end to their idyllic - if slightly odd - way of life. The story has drama, romance and even murder. Can the Mystic Shoemaker maintain his independence or will the arrival of cheap shoes from the modern world throw him out of business?

學校戲劇週:公演音樂劇
「不可思議的造鞋匠 – 一個現代的童話故事」


本校謹訂於二零一九年四月二十七日(星期六)至五月四日(星期六)公演五場英語音樂劇 「不可思議的造鞋匠 – 一個現代的童話故事」

本年度的音樂劇由Mr Geoff Oliver擔任編劇和導演,而學生製作團隊也曾就劇本的內容給予意見。至於本劇的樂曲和舞蹈序列,則由學生製作團隊精心原創。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。

這是一個怪異且匪夷所思的故事。音樂劇的背景設定於一個世遠年陳的時代和遐方絕域的地區,那兒與世隔絕,與外界分離孤立。那兒住了一名怪癖的造鞋匠,他從不製造成雙成對的鞋子,所以那兒人人穿的鞋子只有單隻,有異尋常。但時代變遷,任何一個族類都不能永遠離群索居,外面世界的挑戰和魅惑,預示著那兒雖然古怪離奇但卻質樸單純的生活模式即將結束。本劇內容豐富詭譎,佈局波瀾起伏,集奇情、浪漫於一身,甚至有驚慄的謀殺情節,讓人目不暇給,歎為觀止。

屈原的《離騷》有「路漫漫其修遠兮,吾將上下而求索。」的壯語。特立獨行還是剛愎自用,從來都只是一線之隔,一念之差。那個怪癖的造鞋匠能否恪守自己的風格,抑或終被現代工廠大量生產的廉價鞋子淘汰、為世摒棄、黯然結業?也許這就是時代「進化」的代價啊!

懇請大家踴躍支持。
