Hair-raising fun at school’s big nights
THE wigs are ready and the toes are tapping in preparation for a musical extravaganza.
Mundubbera P-10 students have been hard at work at rehearsals for Just Desserts.
Dance coach Georg Kassulke said preparations were on track for show nights on May 2 and 3.
The stage has been dressed and students are rehearsing in full costume.
“The kids are all putting in a great effort,” Ms Kassulke said.
“There are lots of very talented students and this is an opportunity for them to demonstrate their talent for the community.
“It is also a chance for them to give back to the community some entertainment.”
Ms Kassulke’s daughter, Nat, landed a lead part as a hair-obsessed supermarket worker.
As well as singing and dancing, Nat will have to change in and out of 12 wigs on show night.
The 13-year-old had been in a previous musical as part of the chorus and was nervous about stepping into the limelight.
“I’m a bit worried that I’ll forget my lines,” Nat said.
“I’m looking forward to the laughs — and the wigs, just going out there and having everyone say, ‘oh my god’.”
READY FOR THE STAGE: Nat Kassulke will dazzle in Just Desserts with the help of 12 wigs.
