From Page to Stage®​

“From Page to Stage®” Programme is a comprehensive Learning & Participation theatre education platform in English. Presented since 2009, this is probably the longest-running theatre-in-education production in the city that has reached out to nearly 110,000 audience members. Six productions were produced under The Jockey Club “From Page to Stage®” Programme from 2012 to 2017. It was also one of the English Alliance programmes under the Standing Committee on Language Education and Research (SCOLAR) from 2018 to 2021. Tailor made for local secondary school students, the programme is a fresh and unique educational adventure. Through high quality drama performances and in-school pre- and post-performance workshops, we aim to nurture student interest in classic literature and appreciation of the arts.

We learnt how to perform on stage avoiding minor mistakes which could ruin a show. The plot was easy to understand and enjoyable.

Comedy of Mistakes (2021)

The show used a lively and dramatic storyline to illustrate the process and form of theatre as well as the roles of each performer, combining both entertainment and knowledge in one package.

The Count of Monte Cristo (2019)

I appreciate the effort AFTEC puts into bringing classic literature to life, especially as people can find it hard to relate to a different time and characters from another country.

Student
The Count of Monte Cristo (2019) 

It demonstrated the production of a play – literally from Page to Stage! Students learned about the art of language and enjoyed a more authentic experience than just from reading the book.
