Hair-rais­ing fun at school’s big nights

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

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’.”
