Mangaluru, Mar 2, 2020 : The ‘Mahurtha’ for the Drama titled “Hanv Soth Sangtham “ to be staged on the 5th of April, Sunday at 6pm at St Agnes Special School grounds was held here at Carmel Hill, Bikarnakatte, Mangaluru. Carmel Kiran the official YouTube Channel of Infant Jesus Shrine along with Mangalore Philharmonic Choir will be staging the drama.

Fr. Ronald Serrao, Rector of Jeppu Seminary has translated this drama from English original by ‘Ladislas Fodor’. The drama is based on the theme of Resurrection of Jesus and this is an apt theme to meditate on the same as we are about to enter into the Holy Week.

Renowned artists from Mangaluru and around will be showcasing their talents in this drama. Joel Pereira will be coordinating the whole show and directing the drama alongside with veteran directors Arthur Rasquinha and Jerome Moras. Since this drama involves both virtual and real stage presentation he said that this could be better termed as a dramatic presentation rather than a real theatrical drama.

Speaking about the drama Fr. Ronald said that he had translated this drama long time ago yet the right opportunity has arrived now to stage it. He narrated the summary of the drama and wished all the actors and directors the best.

Fr. Pius James D Souza the Episcopal Vicar of Religious said that such dramas are rarely played these days unlike in the past and need a lot of perseverance. With the entire crew Joel has managed to gather this drama which will be a very great success.

Fr. Wilfred Rodrigues the Superior of St Joseph’s Monastery said that Resurrection is more than a historic event, it is a meta historic event. We are indeed privileged to proclaim it and dramatics is one of the innovative ways how we can proclaim Christ to the world of today. He thanked Joel Pereira the Maestro, a rare multitalented personality, for undertaking this project and promised wholehearted cooperation by the Carmelites.

Earlier Fr. Alwyn Sequeira the Coordinator of Carmel Kiran led the prayer and Carmelite Brothers invoked God’s blessings.
