Per­former com­ing home

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHEN Eidsvold State School chil­dren at­tend the Arts Coun­cil per­for­mance to­day, they’ll be proudly watch­ing one of their own.

Jer­maine Bee­z­ley, 23, grew up in Eidsvold and has had a pas­sion for the arts ever since he was a boy.

Last year he au­di­tioned with Art­slink Queens­land and was se­lected to per­form in schools around Queens­land.

In 2010 Jer­maine grad­u­ated from the Abo­rig­i­nal Cen­tre for the Per­form­ing Arts with a Diploma in Act­ing which fo­cused on cir­cus, dance and voice train­ing.

ACPA gave him the chance to learn with in­spir­ing peo­ple from sim­i­lar backgrounds who shared his pas­sion and now he is in­spir­ing oth­ers with his per­for­mances.

Jer­maine has al­ready per­formed with Deb­o­rah Mail­man, Leah Pur­cell and Rhoda Roberts.

When the RM Wil­liams Aus­tralian Bush Learn­ing Cen­tre was opened by the Queens­land gover­nor in 2010, Jer­maine was one of the key in­dige­nous dancers who per­formed.

To­day’s Arts Coun­cil per­for­mance is Binni’s Back­yard and also stars Ailsa Walsh (from Ip­swich) who plays fiveyear-old Binni.

Jer­maine plays all the other char­ac­ters in the show – thun­der, light­ning, a scrub tur­key, a fa­ther fig­ure, an earth spirit, a frog and a crow.

LO­CALHERO: Jer­maine Bee­z­ley will thrill the chil­dren in his home­town when he per­forms at Eidsvold State School to­day.
