Bangladesh International Tutorial (BIT) inaugurated the three-day long cultural programme on the occasion of its Silver Jubilee at The Red Brick School Auditorium of its Uttara branch on February 23. Fazle Hasan Abed, founder-chairman of BRAC was present as the chief guest.
After recitations from the Holy Books, the audience was welcomed with a group dance and choral rendition of Rabindranath Tagore's Ananda lokey by the students of BIT. This was followed by the main performance of the evening, a theatrical production of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream by the students. Two scenes from the dance drama Chandalika were staged next on special request from the parents. The musicians are all students of the school. The dances and plays were directed by Md. Saiful Islam, drama and art teacher, and Anik Bose, dance teacher.
The lighting was well synchronised with the music. The costumes were impressive. The cast of A Midsummer Night's Dream includes Tashfia Shabnam, Mehnaz Kamal Khan, Zarrin Tasnim, Afreen Zaman Khan, Asif Reza Raj, Tahia Kulsum Azia, Shakur Reajat, Nusrat Hossain, Bushra Rahman, Rashila Rahim, Anika Nusrat, Samantha Saif Kristy, Maisha Mubasharia, Ayesha Abedin, Farabe Wahab, Khandaker Sajid Mahmood, Taseen Ul Imam and Shehzad Noor Taus.
