The two-hour play, dotted with humour and songs, shows how Tad eventually hands over the scheming Obediah into the arms of law while turning a new leaf himself. Other notable characters in the play include the guardian angels Olivia and Xander; Temperance, the brash tomboyish girl who helped Tad trap Obediah; and her uncle Marshal Smelts.
More than 20 cast members, aged 14-19, were involved in the production of the play, which started rehearsals as early as January.
Dalat’s drama director, Mark Sasse, was visibly pleased that it turned out to be a positive experience for his students and hoped to stage a similar production again.
Also present at the performance were Puan Sri Sue Dhanarajan, NCSM Penang vice chairman Datuk Seri Dr T. Devaraj and Datin Seri Elizabeth Devaraj.
