Performer coming home
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.
