Oppa Gangnam style Story Line developed and decided: Mickey met and fell in love immediately with Minnie when he first saw him. He sang a medley of Stand By Me, Marry you and Just the way you are to win Minnie's heart and he did it. They got married after then. One day, when Mickey is ready to spend a good evening with Minnie, he found out that Minnie was actually a cat, a Hello Kitty! He ran for his lives but his fate has been decided, as Hello Kitty hunted him down and feast herself. When everyone thought that Mickey has died, it turned out that Hello Kitty only ate his ears, so Mickey is still alive! He has became a mouse without ears, that is Doremon! Everybody cheers for the happy ending and Doremon was too excited until he throws all of his tools from the pocket located in the middle of his stomach. Everyone was so happy and delight so they dance Harlem Shake and Oppa Gangnam Style to celebrate this memorable event. Characters: Mickey: Peh Ker Neng Minnie: Lee Jo Yee Hello Kitty: Voon Yin Doremon: Chua Doremi: Hui Sim Daisy: Wee Min Donald Duck: Nicolas Wong Goofy: Goh The Story line that I have suggested: Part 1 - Mickey and Minnie met and fell for each other. Part 2 - Minnie later found out that she has ear cancer, and it's in stage 4. Part3 - The story plot later twisted when the audience found out that Mickey is actually a gay. Photo 1.1: I am trying to explain my ideas to my teammate . Photo 1.2: I as a leader trying to explain the objectives of this performance.
Part4 - Minnie found out the truth and kills Mickey out of anger because she could not accept the fact and suicides later, just like the plot of Romeo and Juliet. Then One member of our group will jump up and dance Harlem Shake and everybody turns back alive. THE END. *the reason my story line was not accepted:: it was because the end of the story is too harsh and we afraid that the topic of gay might be accused as profanity or offensive.

The play started with Goofy, Doremon and Donald standing at the back of the stage singing the background music of Stand By Me by Ben E. King. Then Mickey mouse walk up to the stage to serenade Minnie Mouse, who is sitting on the stage reading book. Minnie Mouse was moved by Mickey and danced with him until they got married. Daisy, Hello kitty and Doremi sang Bruno Mars's Just the way you are and Marry you to help Mickey to win Minnie's heart. The couple paused themselves on the stage while waiting the rest go behind the stage.
9th Meeting (24th April 2013) from 1pm to 2pm We have once again change the character of Nicolas (Mickey Mouse) with Joyee Lee (Minnie Mouse) because the play will be more interesting with a boy screening a female character and vice versa. - We have rehearsal once in LT20. I found that most of our members have stage fright, and get panic and extremely nervous when asked to perform in front of people. Once they get panic, their minds went blank and bodies turn into rocks. Secondly, they were not sure about the syncing of the songs. Hence, the whole performance so far was worse than ever imagine. Thirdly, we have no idea how to put in our music instruments into the whole performance. 10th Meeting (25th April 2013) from 10am to 1pm - Once again, after several discussion, we have planned to change the character of Minnie Mouse ( Nicolas Wong) with Hui Sim (Doremi) because Nicolas has to play the drum throughout the whole performance. We have brain stormed and keep on practicing till we figured out about the stage orientation. We try our very best to overcome all the problems and trust me, it has been a tough week for me, with staying up late for practice and sore throat due to excessive amount of singing. Photo 1.6: We try to overcome our stage fright by performing in the amphitheater
