During the event, the Halloween Show Director, who is looking for prospective performers with outstanding acting skills, tested candidates with acting challenges, and the 5 prospective Halloween performers who have been selected today will enter the next round of interview. One of the selected performers, Skyan Chan, currently a Form 6 student, expressed interest in developing in the performing arts area, and although she did not sit her HKDSE exams this year, she hopes that, through performing in this year’s Halloween Fest, she can gain valuable experience so she can apply and study courses in performing arts overseas.
