A group of Senior School students dazzled the crowd on Friday December 7th in a stunning performance of "Esu and the Vagabond Minstrels." Following a rain-out on opening night December 6th, the cast of students performed to a near full house of parents, AKAM staff and students. Led by volunteer drama teacher, Sheliza Jamal, and six weeks of extremely hard work, the cast of students, ranging from Year 7 to IB 2, worked extremely hard for six weeks and created a brilliant performance of the play, which was written by Nigerian playwright Femi Osofisan. The student actors captured the essence and nuances of their characters and portrayed the play’s very important message about helping fellow man and showing selfless compassion.
