Flagrante Delicto – The Comedy Drama

Other than running, trekking, swimming, scuba diving, what else can a runner do to live life? Well, to engage in a project for comedy drama – that is what I am doing. Interwoven with training runs and other races, the rehearsals for the comedy drama have been intensified too. This is to ensure that the cast, comprising of 20 members of the Toastmasters Club, would give our best to entertain you.
We are lucky to have Loghandran, a distinguished speaker from our Toastmasters Club, to be the director for this comedy drama. He is an educational trainer and also a stand-up comedian. He has performed 10 shows so far in the Actors Studio. Much like producing a movie, we too, have a Producer, Ong Siew Chien, another distinguished speaker, to ensure the necessary activities are being done according to schedule.

One the theory side, I just learned it last Sunday during rehearsal, a drama contains series of events with vivid, emotional and conflicting acts. And a comedy has the same elements of a drama. In the acts, characters (acted by actors) are defined and the audiences are watching the characters. Interestingly, there are speech assignments from Toastmasters manuals where speeches are focused on plays.

From the bunting, you would deduce that the comedy drama is about Money, Money and Money. What make it interesting are the abundance of plots and sub-plots. I assure you that it would be funny and full of laughter.

Dear fellow runners and friends, please come and support me, will ya? The proceeds will go to the Toastmasters Club.
