A Labour of Love
Suria Production was founded upon the desire to create a platform that enables students to cultivate interests in the creative and performing arts. Since 2010, the team has produced yearly musical plays that never cease to captivate and entertain audiences with its full-scale production as well as talented cast and crew. Every musical is a result or fruition of its diverse personalities, dynamic talents, deep passion, dedication and teamwork of the Surian family.
The team comprises teachers who are passionate in their roles as directors, musicians, artists and designers. The students, in turn, have benefitted immensely from the professional guidance of their mentors who have committed themselves fully in these creative pursuits.
Thus, it is a great source of pride and joy to witness how these LIVE musical or theatre productions have enabled them to harness their interest in acting, singing, dancing, music, fashion designing, modelling and even event coordinating. This journey of self belief and discovery undoubtedly builds character as well. Despite widespread recognition, the school’s proudest reward lies in seeing its students’ growth. They are, after all, the pulse and heartbeat of every performance.
