“ENTRANCED” narrates the tale of four steadfast friends—Tania, Dalia, Samir, and Malik—in Sawang City, Indonesia, whose bond is tested by the malevolent curse of a witch named Calon Arang. Through the trials they face, the audience is invited to witness their journey of self-discovery, forgiveness, and identity affirmation, essential for breaking the witch’s spell.

Sharon Angriawan, Co-Director of “ENTRANCED,” reflects on the year-long preparation leading to the performance, emphasising the invaluable lessons gleaned by the students. “Our dedication has borne fruit, and we are immensely grateful for the collective effort that has brought this spectacle to life,” she shares.

Echoing her sentiments, Mr. Patrick Lorenzo Carbonell, Supervisor of “ENTRANCED,” underscores the significance of teamwork in achieving excellence. For BINUS SCHOOL Simprug, such initiatives embody the ethos of Personalised Excellence, tailored to nurture individual talents and interests.
