The summer holidays are coming to an end. It's time to dig out your school shoes and check you've done your homework. But that's not all one group of teenagers has to do before term starts. Graduating from the 2007 Summer Workshop organised by the Young Friends of Hong Kong Arts Festival (YFS), the group is going to show off their stage skills in 2007 My Summer Show. Each of the two performances will be divided into three parts. The first section is drama, and 10 students will perform two pieces that they wrote and directed themselves. They attended workshops with famous local director Elton Lau who taught them crucial stage techniques. Music is next on the programme: 20 youngsters will perform two pieces they wrote together. They were tutored by Ng Cheuk-yin, who is the artist associate of the Hong Kong Sinfonietta and a member of the Hong Kong Composers' Guild. He taught them how to create a piece of music from scratch, and the importance and joy of jamming with other musicians. For the final part of the evening, another 10 teenagers will perform Hungarian folk dances. Under the guidance of Mr. Frederick Yeung, a world-known dancer and head London School of Ballet's National Dance school, the students learned various dances, including Rabakozi, czardas and verbunk. Other teens not involved in the performance will work backstage to ensure the show runs smoothly. The show is being held in the Bethanie Theatre in Pok Fu Lam. It was declared a Grade II historic building in 1981. A former French Mission sanatorium built in 1875, it was restored in 2003 and became the campus for the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts' School of Film and Television in 2006. YFS has organised a 30-minute tour of this historic building before the performance on August 30. The tour includes the beautiful neo-gothic chapel, the Wellcome Theatre, converted from two octagonal Dairy Farm cowsheds, and the Sir Y.K. Pao Studio. Through the glass roof of the studio you can see incredible views towards the Peak and across the Lamma Channel to the outlying islands. The tour will also take in the performance venues, exhibition hall, editing rooms, recording studios, museum, balconies and gardens. A 100-year-old banyan tree faces the theatre entrance in the garden and there is a wine cellar in the basement of the museum. Why not take this opportunity and experience Hong Kong's past and the future of Hong Kong performers in one night? The first show will be held at 7.30pm, August 29, in Tsuen Wan Town Hall. The second one takes place at 8pm, August 30, in the Bethanie Theatre. If you are interested in the tour, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to register. For all activities are free of charge.
