Sullivan Sister’s Circus staged at ISD

Sullivan Sister’s Circus staged at ISD

Depicting the story of Sullivan sister's struggle at the time of the Great Depression, International School Dhaka (ISD) organized a play, named 'Dream A Circus Tale', at ISD auditorium on March 7, 2020.
The original play showcased the struggle of two sisters who wanted to revive their family circus. At the time of the great depression, when there was very little scope for jobs, entertainment became obsolete. As a result, Sullivan's family circus was hit harshly in the 1930s. But Emily Jane and Lula Sullivan took an attempt to revive their uniquely talented circus from the financial disaster. Subsequently, they hired an international magician to perform the main act of their show.
Stacy Ohrt-Billingslea, Director, Department of Performing and Visual Arts, International School Dhaka, directed the play along with the support of ISD teachers and over 50 students from Grade 6 - 12. Regarding the play, Stacy Ohrt-Billingslea said, "Our students are always up for any sorts of challenges, whether it is education or entertainment. Without their sheer dedication, it wouldn't have been possible to stage the play. The act wasn't an easy task to pull off, but the students have skilfully showcased it."
