Between The Lines @ British International School of Kuala Lumpur

Between The Lines is a powerful, dramatic, poignant yet uplifting study of war. Seen through the eyes of a career soldier reaching the end of his days and possibly his sanity, Between The Lines explores his experiences of war and the effects those experiences had on those around him. The narrative is illustrated with solo and ensemble numbers drawn from musicals such as Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, and Hamilton and features well known local musical theatre performers Melissa Ong, Tria Aziz, Joshua Gui and Kai Chalmers with Dennis Yeap as The Soldier. Directed by Michelle Tan Hui Sze, Between The Lines runs from Thursday 31st May through to Sunday 3rd June at The British International School of KL Theatre in Bandar Utama and launches The Poppies Arts Series, an arts festival running throughout 2018 commemorating the centenary of the 1918 Armistice which brought the First World War to an end.

While you’re waiting for your children to have their lesson, instead of adding to the calories by eating, or surfing Facebook AGAIN, why not try your hand at an instrument or singing class yourself? It’s never too late and if you played when younger, why not take it up again? Don’t worry, all our tutors are friendly and trained overseas so they know how to ensure you learn at your own pace and enjoy it! You’ll NEVER have to fear a Malaysian Dragon teacher at BAPA so next time you come in, book a free assessment and start making music a family affair.

End Term Showcase ( Under 10’s )
Mar 30 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Our student showcases this term are on Saturday 30th March for the younger students (under 10’s) from 3pm to 5pm and on Sunday 31st March for the older students. Again 3pm to 5pm.

This is a change to previous showcases. The reason is that as we grow in student numbers we feel it is too long for the younger children to sit through a long showcase. But we still want as many students as possible to take part, so we have split the showcase in to two different days. It may be the case that we may have to limit the length of the pieces or the number of students and not every student will get the opportunity to perform at every showcase, but we will do our best. These showcases are free to parents and students.

There will be a limit on the length of each showcase to 2 hours with a short break in between. Of course you are very welcome to attend both. We will provide teas, coffee, biscuits and water. But you are invited to bring along food to share. Kindly let us know in advance. Thank you.

In addition to the Student Showcases, this term there is a Tutor Showcase in the evening of Sunday 31 March in 7pm. You will have the opportunity to see performances by Maja, Irma, Marco, Leon, Xue Fen and Paul and more.

The programmes for each will be ready by 22 March.
