Peter and the Wolf Performance by Faust
by Ms Kartine Cheung, Subject Head / English (Primary)
On Tuesday, 15 May 2018, we invited The Faust international Youth Theatre group to visit SISHK, and they performed an amazing show, “Peter and the Wolf” to our Primary 1 students. Our students thoroughly enjoyed the show and were able to relate to it more after studying about fairy tales in one of our English units. Below are the reflections from some of our Primary 1 students.
‘This is a show called “Peter and the Wolf”. It is about a boy named Peter, who wanted to go out and play but his grandfather was scared because there was a bad wolf in the forest. The grandfather locked the door. The next day, when the grandfather was still sleeping, Peter took the key and secretly opened the door and went out with his friends. He did not know that it looked so beautiful outside. Meanwhile, while they were playing, they did not notice that the bad wolf was coming nearer and nearer. The wolf ate one of Peter’s friends. Then, hunters began to track down the wolf. They walked and walked and finally found the wolf. Then, Peter ran in front of them and said, “Stop!” and set the wolf free.
I like this show a lot. If I were Peter, I would have given the wolf a treat so that the wolf did not go hungry.’

‘On Tuesday, the 15th of May, Faust International came to our school to put on a play of “Peter and the Wolf” because we could not watch “What the Ladybird Heard”. We watched the show in the auditorium after recess and during English lesson. The music was different when the different animals or characters came out. I like the show very much because Sophie was very funny. I like the show very much and I want to watch it again.’

‘Last Tuesday, I saw the performance of Peter and the Wolf by Faust’s Touring Theatre in the auditorium. There were six people on stage. They played Peter, Grandfather, Bird, Duck, Cat and Wolf. The story is about Peter who wanted to hunt but his grandfather did not want him to go out. A wolf came and Peter caught it with a rope.
I like the show because it is very funny. I think the moral of the story which is to be brave.’
