M3 Playhouse Reps 2017, Olympia and Joshua

  What is your motivation to become playhouse reps?  We both love drama and have been heavily involved in playhouse since M1. Knowing what to expect, we wanted to make playhouse in M3 as smooth a transition as we possibly could for our batchmates and help everyone to have as fun and meaningful a time as possible. Hence the role as reps :) Its also lots of fun meeting up with friends that we wouldnt have otherwise met (m3 is veryyy busy haha ><)   Please share one memorable event while planning for playhouse.   There's no one incident we can truly point to but rather a collection of late night skype calls with line calls just to settle multiple things between teams made this year's playhouse an extremely memorable event.   What’s your favourite part of playhouse 2017?   We really love the dynamicity of our cast this year! :)) The discovery of many raw gems amongst our batchmates is also really cool hahaha *cough cough* watch out for a particular step ah lian :P   What was the greatest challenge you faced in playhouse and how did you overcome it?   The start of our clinical year means that all of us had precious little time to work on our acting or props. However, with supportive friends we managed to cope and put up something really sweet together! To our juniors coming into the clinical years, dont be intimidated by the prospect of hospital life, there's still room to spend time in the things that you are passionate in, it will be worthwhile :)) Lets keep the playhouse fire burning for years to come!   What’s your greatest takeaway?  Our greatest takeaways are certainly all the NG takes that we have from everyone ranging from the cast to crew. We're collecting them for m5 when we are sobbing to death from studying. Jkjk hahaha, the biggest takeaway would still be the bonding time with our friends :)) A huge thank you to everyone in M3 playhouse this year, you have really made all this time worthwhile for us!
